An excerpt from my new novel, available for pre-order now (hardcover only).

 "Richarde made the decision for him. Reaching with his left hand to undo the button-fly of his cargo pants, the Canadian stepped away from the others to relieve his bladder. Rod watched in horror as Richarde walked directly toward where he hid behind the juniper bush. As the man approached, as if following some sort of beacon, Rod's hand unconsciously went to the hilt of his Power Eagle survival machete.  By itself, the twelve-inch blade slid slowly from its sheath, sounding as loud as a manhole cover dragging across concrete to Rod's heightened sense of hearing. His eyes widened in fear as Richarde stepped around the evergreen, hand already reaching into his open fly. Their eyes met, and for a brief moment Richarde froze. Then his opposite hand fell to the nine-millimeter Beretta pistol tucked into his waistband. Richarde drew the pistol, but he twisted its butt outward as he pulled, and the front sight snagged against fabric. He yanked it free.  Too late. Rod's Power Eagle flashed upward in a wide arc of its own volition, and the high carbon steel blade rang as it sank deep into the Canadian's neck, severing his spine, and nearly removing his head from his shoulders. "

I have not read Elizabeth's article yet on the Art building where can I find it?

What a wonderful article on the Fine Arts Building.  The description of the smells brought it all back home and the many hours I spent in those rooms; I felt like I was right back there.  I was glad that two of my favorite teachers were so instrumental in its origin.  Great job!

I may quote you in the article--is that okay? Also, what business do you own now?

Hmmm well there was a group of us Roger Kohlhouse, Roger Gilroy a few others that about lived in the Art Department. I was given a key and paid a small amount to open and close the building and kind of watch over it. Professor Beardsley gave me that job as i recall. Anyway often at 2 AM there would be people working there (and I was one of them) Not because we had too but because we wanted to. We all felt there was something very special going on. It was the first time in my life I was so totally totally immersed in anything and Jack Ozegovik and the other Art faculty totally encouraged us. It was a very special time.
