Over the last few months, I have been engaged in a whirlwind of fun book activity with the release of my fifth thriller, RAINBOW VINTNER on February 16, my third memoir, THE FENCERS on March 9 and my third poetry collection, EXTINCTION, on April 6. The first two are both exciting reads and are receiving stellar reviews.
EXTINCTION, which focuses on what we are doing to the world around us, other species and ourselves, was the focus of an Author Interview on Inside Scoop Live which you can listen to at
Its publication in April celebrates both Poetry Month and Earth Month.
Also in April, I will be participating in PoemCity in Manchester VT with a shared reading with my friend, Peter Fox Smith, at the Vermont Humanities Council at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, April 17. I will be mostly reading poetry from EXTINCTION, but mixed in will be a few even newer poems and some from my previous volumes.
I will be launching all three of my new books at the Norman Williams Public Library in Woodstock on Thursday, April 18 4:00-5:30 pm. and at Ben McNally Books at 366 Bay St. in Toronto Wednesday, May 15 6:00-8:00 pm.
There will also be a launch in Cambridge, MA at The Harvard Coopthat focuses on THE FENCERS, and given that a good part of the book captures my fencing career at Harvard, the Harvard Varsity Cluband the Harvard Fencing Associationwill be well represented.
Another launch of THE FENCERS will be in Montreal, where much of the story takes place and where the Canadian Olympic Committee has offered their support.
I am also working on arranging launches for these books in Ottawa, Burlington, Rutland and Bellows Falls among other places. I will keep you informed as these materialize.
Further afield, I will be presenting THE FENCERS at Bookstock in Woodstock VT during the last weekend in July.
As always, I would be very grateful for any reviews of these and my other books that any of my readers would be willing to post. Reviews are what authors depend on.
Many thanks and happy reading,
