Hester

HESTER      Growing up in Asheville,  N.C. in the 50’s and 60’s seemed, at the time, to be filled with a rhythm of adventure and strange encounters sprinkled with an assortment of particularly interesting and somewhat odd characters. One of those persons who fascinated me as a child was my father’s friend “Hester. “       My dad was about as straight an arrow as anyone could find. He seemed to a preadolescent, somewhat indolent son, frankly boring. Looking back from a perspective of 70 years, I…See More

I was always afraid someone would get hurt-namely me! Its one of those games that makes grown-ups yell things like "Somebodys going to…See More

People are Stealing My Ideas!

I Would Swear People are Stealing My Ideas and Putting them on TV and the Movies!

The Muses Bookstore in Morganton is closing at the end of March

The Muses has been a landmark to readers throughout the region for 40+ years.  Owned by a mother daughter team, Shirley Sprinkle and Kelly Treiber, readers could depend on their evaluations and recommendations about what to read.  Someone working in the store has always read every book on their shelves. 

 

Alas, independent bookstores such as theirs are disappearing.

 

The Muses will host a booksigning for my new book, MISS DOROTHY AND HER BOOKMOBILE…

Writing that is Disturbing

 

            Several people who have read my novel, Homunculus, have commented that they were disturbed by it.  Although they said it apologetically to be nice, I'm glad they were disturbed, and just sorry that some people who do make reading a part of their lives nevertheless have a mental list of places they "don't want to go."

Homunculus is about the effect of career-related frustrations on the libido and marriage of a couple when one day the stressed-out…
