Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past. At the east end, the 21st century reigns. Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away . Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More
Again, thanks so very much! I look forward to your reading my books--and do want to know what you think of them. I think all writers really appreciate comments from their readers.
I remember you, of course, and I remember also your earnestness and your willingness to learn and to write I remember, too, that you did once write to me after you left NC.
How did you get to Knoxville and have you lived there long? And I trust that you still have an interest in writing as your comments indicate.
I shall await your comments on the books with interest. I'm assuming you found New Ground, The Ambiguity of Morning, and First Light on Amazon. I do have Thanks for the Dark but That's Not Home: Poems and Stories--and, of course, Colloquy in Black and White: Poems; these 2 are not on Amazon, I don't think. And I have a book of poems entitled Home that is forthcoming from March Street Press, a small press in Greensboro.
There is a local publishing company called Grateful Steps--the author Joan Medlicott and I have a book coming out from them entitled Reflections in a River--Joan did the photographs and she invited me to write the haiku to accompany the photographs--I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product!
Rob Neufeld has been very good to support me and other local writers and to do reviews of my books. Just recently I read at Malaprops in their Poetria series on Sundays with 2 other poets. And we were interviewed/filmed by 2 students from Univ. of SC who were traveling the southeast interviewing writers and artists as part of a film project. That was a fun experience!
Do let me hear from you again.
Yes, I am indeed that same journalism teacher--and what a treat to hear from you! You are very generous with you praise, and I must admit that it does my heart good to hear your words--and to hear that I had such a lasting, positive effect on you and your writing life.
How wonderful is that! I hope you do enjoy my books. I have a new book of poetry, Colloquy in Black and White (Rob Neufeld's comments/review are here on The Read.
I would love to hear what you think of the books. Please do let me know. And do let me know more about what you are doing right now in your (writing) life and otherwise.
Again, I am so very delighted to hear from you. Best, Nancy Dillingham
