In the Book Case

I'm the featured blogger this week over at the Book Case, a page of news and thoughts on publishing at The editors asked me to talk about some aspect of how I came to write The Poacher's Son. It being Memorial Day (or almost) I couldn't help but tell the story of my being nearly killed by a lightning strike twenty-two years ago this weekend in the mountains of western Maine. That night continues to shape my life in surprising ways, as you'll discover if you click over there and read "A Haunting Memorial Day Weekend."
