Guess what I just ordered!  My good friend Carolyn Haines has a new book out.  Hurray!  Carolyn writes very scary books…and very funny books (the “Bones” series)…rescues animals…teaches writing…and is one of the most interesting and kind women I’ve ever had the pleasure to know.carolyn

THE DARKLING

You can read more about it  HERE.  From Amazon:

R.B. Chesterton is the pseudonym for Carolyn Haines, who was the 2010 recipient of the Harper Lee Award for Distinguished Writing, the 2009 recipient of the Richard Wright Award for Literary Excellence, and the 2011 RT Reviewers’ Choice Award for Best Amateur Sleuth. She is the author of more than sixty books in a number of genres. She is an assistant professor of English at the University of South Alabama where she teaches fiction writing.

For more info on Carolyn’s animal rescue organization, click Good Fortune Farm Refuge.

Carolyn and I met at a writers conference in San Antonio over twenty years ago.  We joined a day trip of horseback riding, bbq lunch and a roping show outside of Austin, and then the two of us visited the Alamo.  We’ve had some good times in Alabama, New York, New Orleans, Mississippi, Boston, Concord, Colorado and Rhode Island…including a memorable evening at the House of Blues and a weekend at a metaphysical conference in upstate New York.

One of these days I’ll talk her into joining me in Austin for a little tequila and a lot of music.

Soon, I hope.
