Okay, you already know that any recipe with “supreme” in the name probably has black olives in it and, look at this, no surprise, this one is no different. It really turned out to be good, though.


  • hard-boiled eggs, cut up
  • thin-sliced celery
  • thick-sliced green onions
  • sweet pickle relish
  • black olives (ta-daaa!)
  • pickled capers
  • mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper

Mix and eat. Good on fresh-baked bread. Good on toast. Good warmed and sprinkled with cheese.

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you might detect an uptick in promotional posts. That’s because I want to sell more books. Apparently, “If you build it, they will come” only applies to baseball diamonds in cornfields. Or maybe I should be doing all my book signings in cornfields out in the country. Yeah, yeah, that’s it! And I bet having a ghost with the voice of Darth Vader looking over my shoulder and giving advice wouldn’t hurt, either.

WRITING PROMPT: A character tries to make something plain seem fancy with a couple of slight additions.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      Hi, Ann — I always boil at least half a dozen eggs at a time, so I can put one in a salad or on a sandwich or devil one or make a two-person egg salad. Just, please, no Miracle Whip for me, please. I have a mixed marriage: Charlie likes Miracle Whip and I like mayonnaise.
