New Author Webpage

Meanderings and Muses isn't going anywhere.


I do have a new webpage which will focus mostly on my writing.

If you're interested in reading more about my books, anthologies, and events, please click over to

There are a few videos of me reading from "Whimsey: A Novel," and from other favorite authors' work.

With more videos still to come.

The new page is a work in progress with plans for still more to come
- I'm just still trying to figure out exactly what that might be -
so check back from time to time, please.

See you there!

Made Up Mexican Casserole

and it's so easy!

I brown 2 lbs. of ground beef along with some chopped onion

when the ground beef has browned, drain it.

Stir in a package of Taco Seasoning and follow the directions of the back of the package.

After I've done this, I toss in some jalapeno peppers.

After I've seasoned the meat, I let it cool for a little bit, then spoon the meat into flour tortillas - usually six of them - and place seam side down in a casserole dish.

Whatever seasoned ground beef I have left, I pour over the filled tortillas.

Pour a can of enchillada sauce ove the tortillas and top with shredded cheese.

I used a Mexican Cheese mixture and then some extra sharp cheddar.

Bake at 350 until it's bubbly around the edges and the cheese has started browning.

Serve topped with whatever you want - Salsa, onions, lettuce, quacamole, sour cream, etc. etc. etc.

Ohmigod. That looks so good. I don't think I could eat that. I would be eating it for a week.

It does make a lot. Wonder how it would freeze?
