      It was supposed to be last Sunday but I ran out of time. I did email everyone but only one person replied (so at least I know it went to someone). Everyone else probably just nodded and deleted. 🙂

        I never saw the email until today…hence the hurried response. I have added it to my pages so fingers crossed we get traffic. I have added all your links as usual. Thanks and good luck 🙂

    Good evening Ladies. Firstly: Morgen, thank you. 🙂

    I really enjoyed both Jane’s and Jade’s stories and both have a personal appeal.

    Jane – I have a huge interest in the Sicilian Mafia as opposed to the American; your experiences intrigue me and I enjoyed your story no end. Living so close to the Italian border I have immersed myself in the true stories of the Sicilian post-war Mafia; irrespective of what the newspapers say (especially the Italian ones), the problem hasn’t gone away with Riina and Provenzano behind bars – small businessmen (and women) still cough up. I’ve about 6 books on the subject and should really dip in more and use for material. I did start a Mafia-related story a couple of years ago but…I’m no crime writer. I guess I’ll have to wait for the ghost of Elmore Leonard to come and kick my crime-writing muse up the ‘arris…

    Jade – I have Danish in my blood from generations ago and Norse mythology I find fascinating. It’s strange that we know so much about other mythologies but Norse, as with Anglo-Saxon, is a collection of stories handed down by word of mouth, told by the fireside as the north wind tore the snow from the ground and heaved it at the thin, wooden hut walls as the inhabitants shivered inside. They would appreciate the imagery you brought to ‘Old Norse’.
