Spent nine-months workshopping my second manuscript with these talented folks. Looking forward to the fall when we start again!
Florence Harding brings a few things to the table.
What a gift to spend two weeks, in the Tenneesee woods, writing new words to a new novel. 2018 is already looking beautiful.
With the band.
Man, did I learn a thing or two on the mountain.
Wandering the halls of long gone American homes.
I'm getting a better sense of the families occupying my next book.
Caught up in the research for my next manuscript. Getting to know the character that will walk around in my mind, come alive on paper, and occupy so much of me forever, is proving just as thrilling as the last time I did this! #onward #cantstop #mustwrite #mustresearch #writing
52 years ago today we lost and gained a President. An unimaginable amount is still unknown about the events. I know some hope the US government will open an investigation with new evidence that's been uncovered by "citizen journalists." But, I doubt this will happen.
I suspect we will come closer to the truth through the long tradition of literature and the arts. (But this might just be the hippe artist in me.) My hope is the manuscript I've been working on will add to this tradition and provide a fictional window in which to view different aspects of the story. LBJ was a titan of a character. He was there the days leading up to 11/22, that day, and for the next one thousand eight hundred and eighty-five days as POTUS.
Sept. 28, 1967. 12:47 PM. LBJ has an off-the-record meeting with columnist Drew Pearson, who does not appear to be enjoying this variation of the Johnson treatment.

It’d be difficult to write a story about LBJ and not have come across a Drew Pearson article or two. Pearson’s articles ran nationally and were often very critical of Johnson.
