M is smaller than you think

Micro, Mini, all small words. Mash, make it small. But

Moldis for Maron, Margaret Maron. Hey that’s two Ms!

Most of you haven’t heard of Margaret Maron. She writes mysteries (another m). Her main character is a judge called Deborah Knott. There are so many layers of meaning in that name and her profession that it boggles the mind. Just roll it around in your head for a while. Deborah works in rural North Carolina, not far from Raleigh-Durham. I like her. Maron paints a great picture of Deborah and her colleagues working in their particular setting, and sometimes away from their own patch. There are sometimes issues with the point-of-view in the writing, but that gets better after a while. I enjoy these. They are like M&Ms — crunchy chocolatey treats but for your brain. Brain candy!
