How To Kill Your Reader

Danger is a crucial element in a mystery novel. A killer is on the loose and no one is safe. But sometimes the killer can be the writer, and the victim, the reader.I'm talking about when the author turns into a preacher and the story becomes a sermon. Now I am not against using a mystery novel for social commentary. Writing doesn't happen in a moral vacuum, and, after all, isn't a mystery a morality play? As fellow North Carolina author Margaret Maron said there is no topic that can't be dealt…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?
