Hi. You may remember me as editor of the CWC newsletter (2015-2019), or from my historical novel, Memphis 1873.  My new novel, Unusual Suspects, is now available in a Kindle edition. But here’s the thing: customer reviews are very important for writers. Without them, we can’t even advertise our books. Please let me know if you would be willing to read a digital copy of Unusual Suspects (at no cost to you) and leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads in the next few weeks. If it sounds like something that might interest you while you are stuck at home, please let me know and I’ll send you a digital copy of the book for free.

Here is the Amazon link so you can check it out and see if you’re interested:

Thank you

Dennis Carrigan

Mary Alice Dixon was selected as a finalist in the 2019 Living Springs short story contest. Her feminist story Revolt of the Blessed Virgin Mother has just been published in Living Springs' anthology "Stories Through the Ages Baby Boomers Plus 2019."

The "Revolt" is the tale of a defiant girl who takes on the religious hierarchy as represented by the girl's nemesis, Joey Patrick Purcelli, and by the dictatorial Sister Mary Agnes, casting director of the fifth grade Christmas play.

The editors note "Mary Alice Dixon has crafted an exceptional story both funny and believable" in the adventure of a rebellious girl who discovers life isn't always fair but "does her part to get even."

The anthology is available from the publisher at and on Amazon.
