Sassy Southern Classy Cajun

Please allow me a personal privilege in announcing the recent release of my latest book. A few months ago the fantabulous publishers at L & L Dreamspell asked me to develop a cookbook as a part of my Sidra Smart mystery series, which is set in southeast Texas, an area made up of southerners and Cajuns. The result is Sassy Southern Classy Cajun.

Autographed copies of the book are available through PayPal at and will soon be available at

In the Sidra Smart series, she starts making pickles in the last book. I’ve made the pickles, Sidra Smart’s Sassy Pickles, and sold them at book events. The recipe is included in the cookbook, which makes a perfect Christmas gift. Hope you’ll get your autographed copy!

Second Blog site

I have created an additional blog. My first one, RULES TO LIVE BY,

(at http:/

is a blog unrelated to my writing life. It is intended to be more of inspiration and sharing lessons learned along my life of wilderness wanderings.

The new blog, Sylvia Dickey Smith Books, relates to my books, my writing, how-to, a peek into my writing life, and an occasional short story.

Hope you will drop by and leave a comment that you've been there. I'd love for you to subscribe to both. (And if you will leave me your blog address, I promise to subscribe to yours.)

Radio Interview with Baron Ron Herron

I was interviewed this morning at 7:35 PST today by KZSB AM 1290 in Santa Barbara, California, on Baron Ron Herron's radio. We talked about Lost Witness, the second Niki Alexander mystery following Less Dead. The program airs in Santa Barbara , Goleta , Carpinteria, Ventura , Thousand Oaks and Los Angeles County . In addition, the show is rebroadcast on KNRY AM 1240 in Monterey , Salinas , Santa Cruz and Pebble Beach ; KNWZ-II AM 1270 in Palm Desert, Palm Springs , Indio and Rancho Mirage. The program is delayed broadcast in Australia on 99.7 FM in Queensland and to another 30+ radio stations via ComRadSat. Have no idea when the delayed broadcasts air.
