A blog about poetry, teaching, crime fiction (maybe), a certain amount of politics, guitar gear and other stuff.
More actual reader comments:
One from Blondie in Texas:
I loved High Season and Mating Season and look forward to Fire Season. I enjoy reading books set in the "real world". I'll admit the sex scenes get me a little worked up but that's actually a bonus. I know my husband appreciates it. Keep up the great work !!!
Happy to oblige, ma'am.
And there's this very kind note from Bob Voges:
Picked up "High Season" last week in the Now Voyager bookstore in P-Town and just loved it. I especially loved the reference to seeing John Waters at the A&P, since I had seen him bicycling down Commercial St just a few minutes before I bought the book. You get P-Town exactly right, I think, and do for P-Town what Lawrence Shames has done for Key West. Looking forward to enjoying "Mating Season" and "Fire Season" and, I hope, many more. Thanks so much.
No, thank YOU, Bob. Always happy to get feedback from readers (especially when I get stuff right). Happy, too, that Now Voyager's still stocking HS. Will miss visiting P'town this year, but things being what they are it's just not possible. Sigh.
I'm the author of the Frank Coffin mystery series, HIGH SEASON (2007), MATING SEASON (2009) and FIRE SEASON (2012) from St. Martin's/Minotaur. I've also published three books of poems VANITAS MOTEL (1998), THE PLEASURE PRINCIPLE (2001), and The MANSION OF HAPPINESS (2016), all from Oberlin College Press. I'm currently at work on a comedic novel and a new book of poems. When I'm not writing I'm a college professor, a sort of okay guitar player, a guitar gear junkie, and a husband and father in progress.
