I’ve temporarily cut back on blogging cleanfor my put-my-life-back-in-order spring cleaning — a project known far and wide as the Annual Purge. Thanks for stopping by even if there isn’t much new to see. I have no time for blogging right now, but the extinct word of the day is updated daily.

Download your copy of my free 1st and 2nd chapter sampler, I write what I’d like to read so my stories are rich in realistic/historically correct dialogue and factual information. My multidimensional characters are the sort you’d welcome into your home to share a cup of tea or a beer. Pssst… I wouldn’t open the door to the villains…

Coming soon~

I’ll be blogging full bore in April with the A to Z Challenge. My list is growing and topics will cover fascinating aspects from history. I have a healthy sense of wonder. I promise your imagination will fly with mine.

For ten days in April I’ll be in the Authors in Bloom blog hop on one of my satellite blogs. It’s all about showing those many facets authors have outside of their novels. Many years ago, my husband and I led wild foods programs for Chicago’s Field Museum. I’ll be sharing my recipes.

    I wish there were some way to get the etymology of the word. It should be able to be broken into parts.

  2. I know what you mean, Ray. This one is literal: Ut = Old English for “out” and Legi = Latin for law.

  3. Ray G says:

    I think I figured out most of it from looking up legation and legate. Sent out as a representative, utlegaton would be someone sent out on his/her own.
