"That's an awfully kind review, Gary--many thanks! Especially for the Jeffers reference--he's one of my favorite poets, as I guess you can tell. :-)"

"Thanks, Gary--but Swamp Monster will be a long time coming. It's at LSU for consideration now, and even if they do take it, their backlog is about three years (sigh.) Don't know much about drama--what's your play about?"

"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."

"I'd be honored! Fair warning, though--SMN may not want it. 2006 is "old" as poetry books go. I've got a new one off at LSU right now (tentatively titled The Swamp Monster at Home), but even if they feel they can take it…"

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.

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?
