A Pair of Stories

Just tonight, KXLY (local Spokane ABC station) ran two stories about me and my writing career...as well as my being a police officer.

One was by Nicole Hensely, a web journalist, who took a series of photographs and wrote an article to accompany those photographs. She also quotes a few passages from my books. The link to Nicole's story is HERE.

Robyn Nance, a television journalist for KXLY, did a video feature that appeared tonight. They interviewed me and featured some of my novels. The piece, much like Hensley's, was very favorable. Hensley delved into the idea of place (real places) in fiction, while Nance did a great job of capturing my real personality. I was most grateful that she used footage that was important to me -- why I write about cops, and what I admire about the men and women I work with.

The video story is HERE.

I want to say thank you to both Nicole Hensley and Robyn Nance for featuring my work and treating me very well!

Get Lit! Spokane Invited Me!

I will be taking part in the Get Lit! Festival, sponsored by EWU, April 10-15, 2012. The festival is a very cool collection of fiction, non-fiction and poetry authors, all of whom particiapte by invitation only.

I will be doing a reading on 4/14 (Saturday) at 10 AM, as well as being part of a panel discussion later on that same day, at 1:45 - 3:15 PM. This will take place at the Phase 1 building of the Riverpoint campus for EWU right here in Spokane.

Get Lit! is a great expression of local artists as well as a great expression of love for the arts by locals. I hope some of you will make it there, whether to see me or any of the other great artists. (Hint:  Jess Walter will be there, so that's worth the gas money alone).
