Interview with Trin Carl

Pinnacles climbing on 12/10/17

Minnesota writer Trin Carl recently interviewed me for his blog. He asked thoughtful questions about my writing process and allowed me to ramble on. I even got to share my reminiscence about Tony Hillerman! I think you’d all enjoy the exchanges, so I’ve included a link below. Please do let him know you visited!

The Gettysburg Address – its power grows.

The Monterey Pops performed a great concert at Stanton Theater in King City on November 11th. I was honored to provide narration for one of their pieces – A New Birth of Freedom by Randol Bass. The text? Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. I got a lot of help from the Pops, but Lincoln’s words needed no help at all. He made it clear forever what being an American means and requires. Thanks, Abe.

Youth Imagination Features Bogerd!

I’m pleased and honored that Editor Sue Babcock chose to feature Demon’s Due in the current issue of Youth Imagination. The story details another adventure of Bogerd, my middle aged viking character. I’ve long admired Fritz Leiber and especially his berserker Fafhrd. Bogerd is what Fafhrd might be like should he achieve grandfatherhood. The link is below:

Have a couple or drinks first!

My “Dogwood Dream” and “Black Maggie’s Secret” are to be dramatized and presented at a literary evening in Hollywood on October 8th. If you’re in Southern California and are interested, I’ve put the official announcement containing pertinent details above. I won’t be able to make it, but I’m most interested in how this turns out. Both stories are personal favorites of mine.

P.S. If you know somebody in L.A. who might like to attend, please send this link to them!
