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

No 6 in Asheville Cit Times Top Twenty WNC books!

I was surprised and of course delighted to see my book Tender Graces on the list in last Sunday's paper, much less to see it at No 6!



And, though I hate touting a big monster, I can't help but be pleased to be on the Amazon Kindle Bestsellers in LIterary fiction - on the Number 1 spot no less - with Kathryn Stocketts The Help as Number 2 -- although, we have switched and she is No 1 and I No 2--and so it goes.



But I'm also No 9 in over all genres on Kindle.

screaming and hollering “oh my.”





Poor old Blacksnake just hangin’ there,



not hurtin’ nobody in the world.



Seems some folks don’t like no…

Family of Arthur Edwin Guest and Dorothy Galloway Guest

Today I received a rather large package from Iowa that contains old photos of the family of Arthur Edwin Guest and wife, Dorothy Galloway Guest, along with old letters and other misc papers.

Arthur died in 1994 in Buncombe County and Dorothy died in 1969 in Buncombe County. From census records they were in Iowa up until 1930... then they are found living in New Jersey. I am not sure when they came to Buncombe County.

I would like to find living descendants of this couple, or…
