Debra H. Goldstein to Killer hobbies today! Her newest mystery, Should Have Played Poker launched yesterday! May Jongg and mysteries--oh my!
When I was a child, I thought Mah jongg was a game for old ladies – like my thirty-five-year-old mother and seventy-seven-year-old grandmother. The way I saw it, even though they were at different stages in their lives (the height of fashion versus pink-haired with wrinkles), both of them joined a group of friends for an afternoon of gossip, dessert, and excitement if they won 50 cents. Now, I know those afternoons and evenings were all of that, but also were a time when people came together to play a tile game that truly required skill, concentration and thought.
