The Mendocino Coast Writers Conference is held on the scenic northern California coast. I know, I learned to write and swim there (Fort Bragg, CA). Its faculty has included: Barbara Kingsolver, John Lescroart, Ronnie Gilbert, and Gary Snyder. It offers scholarships and contests and nature hikes. I wish I could be there to see Glass Beach, Noyo Harbor, and Pudding Creek. It’s held this year in late July. Check it out at http://mcwc.org.
Thanks to all the visitors today. I’m thinking you didn’t come yesterday because you didn’t know about the site yet. They don’t call me Sherlock Holmes. Thanks also to Charlotte for her comments. This is inspiring; I’ll have to add some new material now you’ve brought it to life for me.
Welcome Readers. This site chronicles the process of my writing as well as showcasing some of it. I write novels, songs, and poems. I’ve written five novels: Joe Island, Blues Pizza, Borderdance, Tesora, and Tardy Son. Tardy Son was a semi-finalist for the Faulkner Novel-in-Progress Prize. My new work-in-progress is called Stringless. Please leave me a comment.
My style of humor is comparable with Nick Hornby of High Fidelity, said agent Carolyn Jenks.
Here’s a Nick Hornby interview in the Guardian (UK):
A poet clashes with his father to avoid fighting in the Viet Nam War. A reporter follows him to get the story as he smuggles draft dodgers and hashish over the Canadian border. Her need for the adventure in his story and his need to escape confuses the feelings which develop between them.
