I Have a Coin

I Have a Coin I have a coin I deem a treasure.One side bears the sign of extinction,And the other, an instance of nature.But it’s not a coin; it’s a seal,And the meaning of this distinctionIs the unbearable sadness I feelWith experience, or with closure. It seems like a double exposure,But the knowledge of impermanenceBleeds into the ideal likenessOf mortality in its eminence—To yield a vibrant pictureOf a creature’s essential brightnessAs it burns for life without censure. --Rob NeufeldSee More

Hidden Scars - Sam Blackman and Black Mountain College

I don't know if this is true for my fellow writers, but proofing can be the most difficult part of the process.  I received the ARC today for October's Sam Blackman Mystery and will begin the last review for typos or formatting errors that have eluded my editor, my copy editor, and myself.  Amazing that there is always something that the brain "fixes" and we don't see.Hope springs eternal that the October release will be typo-free.  The mystery is set against the historic backdrop of Black…See More

I direct the English education program at Western Carolina University; if you want to be an English teacher, drop me an e-mail. My writing life has included some academic work, an ill-fated novel, and some poetry. You're most likely to see the latter, if you want to, in a book of poems from LSU in 2006, The Memory of Gills, which won the 2007 Roanoke-Chowan Award from the NC Literary and Historical Association (thank you, NCLHA!) It was reviewed last summer in NCLR (thanks, Margaret!), and last fall in APR (thanks, Keith!) Poems have also appeared on the North Carolina poet laureate's blog (thanks, Kay!) Right now, summer 2009, I'm writing assessment reports and reading more poetry than I have in some while.

Catherine,
My review of The Memory of Gills is on my blog now. (hollernotes.blogspot.com/) It may be a month before Smoky Mountain News publishes the review, but they will.

Let me know when "The Swam;p Monster" is out, and I am still going to review "The Memory of Gills" as soon as I catch up. I have a new play that I would love to get your reaction to.

Catherine,
I want to write a review of "The Memory of Gills" for the Smoky Mountain News. It will probably be a good while before they will publish it ... maybe a month.

My thing used to be Sunday mornings--I'd bake bread and catch up on correspondence. Then I started working on Sunday afternoons and that kind of shot Sunday mornings. I somehow never got back to the written corresponsence, which I love. I have a friend in grad school in NY and we've been attempting to write letters, not terribly successfully.

I wonder if we'll be any better at keeping in touch this way? The youngsters tell me it's all the rage and you know how important I think it is to remain forever young, don't you?

Good Thanksgiving?
