We Write.

“We write every day, we fight every day, we think and scheme and dream a little dream every day. Manuscripts pile up in the kitchen sink, run-on sentences dangle around our necks. We plant purple prose in our gardens and snip the adverbs only to thread them in our hair. We write with no guarantees, no certainties, no promises of what might come and we do it anyway. This is who we are.” -Tareheh Mafi

Murray's Mill Historic site

There are places that you can't get out of your mind. One of those places for me is Murray's Mill. A grist mill has been operated here since 1863. The first time I visited here, there was a one-lane bridge that a car could barely fit through, and a timber-road. Since then, it has become a tourist attraction - a little. Still it has a nice feel to it. Very peaceful and beautiful.

I've never written specifically about Murray's mill - but the location has been in the Sharyn Howard Mysteries, Peggy Lee Garden Mysteries, and now in Sweet Pepper Fire Brigade Mysteries. Who know where it will end up next!


All streams lead to the mill.
This picture doesn't do the wheel justice. It's huge - the building is that much bigger.
The one-lane bridge I mentioned. It's closed to cars now.
