Carol Crigger's Writing Pages

An Idaho native who resides in Washington, Crigger writes fiction set in the northwest, which she thinks is underrepresented in western writing. She is currently concentrating her efforts on her China Bohannon stories, a historical mystery series set in Spokane, Washington. A Spur Award finalist in 2007 for short fiction (Aldy Neal’s Ghost,) and again in 2009 in audio (Letter of the Law,) Crigger has also served several times as a Spur Award judge, moderated panels at the WWA conventions, and writes book reviews and occasional articles for Roundup Magazine. She pitched for and won the 2005 WWA convention which was held in Spokane, when the hosts were local members. She’s been a proud WWA member since October, 2000.

Thanks to you folks who voted me onto the executive board of WWA. It's my honor and I'll do my very best for the organization.

The Winning Hand and Letter of the Law (see below for links) have both been sitting in the top 20 Kindle Westerns for the last few weeks. I've gotten some wonderful reviews.
Reviews make a writer happy.

and you'll hardly believe the ingredients.

                                                                   1 large ripe avocado                                                
                                                                    1/4 C. cocoa powder (prefer dark)
                                                                  1/4 C. maple syrup (or a little more depending on taste) in a pinch, you can use regular syrup
                                                                  1/4 C. nut milk (almond, cashew or coconut)
                                                                  1/2 t. vanilla
                                                                  dash of sea salt

                                 Add all ingredients to a food processor or a blender. Puree for 1 - 2 minutes, until smooth. Divide into two dessert dishes. I used pretty crystal wine
glasses. And, since I'm not vegan, I layered the mousse with whipped cream. Add a few baby orange slices on top.

Seriously, you'll be shocked at how good this is!
Fabulous texture.
And what could be easier?
