Thoughts Can Be Murder: A Sammi Evans Mystery (Book) - 7/11/2010 12:46:49 PM|
Enjoyed the read: mini review Following the good-natured, and at times bemused Sammi as she struggles to maintain her equilibrium as soon to be wife, bank employee, friend, and concerned citizen against the needs of the police and others around her for use of her ability to actually hear the thoughts of others and lead to solving of exceptionally baffling cases is set down in readable fashion by a new writer who has now produced three books, and surely as several more already filling her thoughts.
Drouillard’s characters are nicely developed, completed with enough detail to make them very believable, with the nicer folk very nice and very likeable, while the rogues tend to be downright rascals. Hard hitting dialogue, is pithy, convincing, and spot on. Settings are filled with enough description to draw the reader into the setting, hold interest tight and keep the reader turning the page.
Your Thoughts Can Trap You, a Sammi Evans Mystery is an absorbing tale as we follow Sammi Evans across nearly 300 pages to a satisfying conclusion.
Not for everyone, those who prefer a situation begins, and continues right through to the last page will not be so fond of a meandering tale comprising several varying situations. Those who enjoy interwoven tales, as I do, will find much to like on the pages of Jeanne L Drouillard’s Your Thoughts Can Trap You, a Sammi Evans Mystery.
Happy to recommend Jeanne L Drouillard’s Your Thoughts Can Trap You, a Sammi Evans Mystery.

I thoroughly enjoyed this first chapter of Thoughts Can Be Deadly. You've created a believable husband and wife. I will look forward to reading more about Sammi and Dave.

I normally don't venture in this end of the den and interact with the platties (platinum members) but I have to say this is well written. This is something I think could be fleshed out and submitted to Glimmertrain. They're a hard one to crack but if you can break it there you're on your way.

I can relate to this write because I have had surgery a number of times for my eyes and in fact I am scheduled for another one in May. I also believe very much in angels and miracles. Thank you for sharing this, Jeanne. Love and peace to you,

The Ballad of the Adopted Child -- Part II (Article) - 3/19/2010 8:09:45 AM
As an adoptive dad of two daughters (now adults), I experienced this condition first hand, during my younger daughter's teens. It was extremely painful to witness the child I loved display such distress, anger, and confusion. My wife and I found a great helper in adoption psychologist Nancy Newton Verrier (whose book, The Primal Wound, I highly recommend). The good news is that we hung in there with our daughter, and she graduated from college with a degree in Social Work. She now works in the field of Elder Care and is the mother of a 3-yr.-old son. She is now a wonderful, compassionate human being. Jeanne Drouillard's advice is not easy to follow, but it contains great wisdom that can lead to success.
To close, our daughter did not laugh much as a child or teen. Now, she has a genuine sense of humor, and I love sharing with her an occasional belly laugh.
After All, She Was Just A Dog (Article) - 3/17/2010 6:44:32 PM
Beautiful thoughts, glad she was your dog.
I wrote a poem called, "A Dog's Life."
It is sad- but I hoped would turn things around- like this piece can.
After All, She Was Just A Dog (Article) - 3/17/2010 5:39:45 PM
I love this article. "She was just a dog" must have come from someone who has not yet been lucky enough to be blessed with the love these beings have excelled beyond humanity with.

I have not been sleeping, but the past years have sped by. When I was a child, I thought of these years and now they're here.

Frustrating, bordering on infuriating. Lead the reader on and then leave him gasping for breath at the end of this nonsensical endeavor. That is why I loved it.

It makes one think. I wonder how many times similiar thoughts have crossed all of our brains? Good piece! Sandi

Your writing says that which many people and possibly most of our teens have floating around in their heads, as they struggle to find their place in society...Very nice job.. I enjoyed the read.

So take heed of the moments
Too soon they multiply,
And many shall awaken
And find their lives gone by.
I appreciate the philosophical point of view that you've shared here via your verses, Jeanne. Thank you. Love and best wishes,
