Thank You: What A Wonderful Year

We had a wonderful year at Mystery Playground in 2017. And I couldn't do this all by myself, so I wanted to thank all of the wonderful people who help with this blog. 

First is the fabulous Kerry Hammond, who not only posts weekly (sometimes several times a week), but also helps with the creative development of posts, guest recruitment and editorial direction. 

Sharon Long not only reviewed books, but also developed several author Q&As and helped us get the mammoth Murder on the Orient Express undertaking underway. 

Our Head Librarian, Pat Hernas, is always on hand for research and development - you should see the list of odd books that she digs up for me. She also suggests posts, and helps with crafts and recipes

Next is power crafter and chef, Lorraine Masonheimer. She made everything from the NCIS basball hat cake above to Natchez Mississippi Hand Pie. Check out her full Dinner and A Movie for the Hitchcock classic, The Birds.

Author Ellen Byron is also a frequent contributor of wonderful posts from New Orleans and Mardi Gras

And our newest contributor, Cari Dubiel, with her library data analysis and reviews

Thank you everyone! It's been a wonderful year.
