Can the Doctor write?”.................................... Book-Expo 2007 (Booth 1846)
5/4/2007 4:14:54 PM
Spurred by the nurse’s query, I looked over the order-sheet she handed me. In the rush to write emergency orders, I had used the swirls of the consonants to pull the adjoining vowels flat onto the lines on the page. Only knotted lines were visible, rather than the medical directions I intended. Though the nurse had only questioned the legibility of my writing, the tone of her voice challenged even the content of what was written.

When I first sat to write Cry WaterColors, my intent was to entertain a personal creative impulse. It did not matter if a knotted string was all that I created. When the imagined characters I wrote began to share their passions, I cared that anyone reading would feel as I did. It became important that every word interact with each other, in content as much as in rhythm. When completed, I stowed the loose pages of the book in a shoe-box and hid it inside the closet. A few years later I recalled the nurse’s challenge and realized that Cry WaterColors was more than a knotted string; its content had value beyond a personal impulse. At the NYC Book Expo I intent to share the art of Cry WaterColors with those who care to stop by my booth (#1846).

Reviews: “…Cry WaterColors is poetic, lyrical and extremely moving. His keen eye and mind for detail creates a canvas so rich, characters so deep - it's magical to read.”
……………………………………………..Arthur Wooten, Author (On Picking Fruit) and playwright

“…It’s a poetic love story about looking inside yourself and facing your demons. Beautifully written gorgeously layered, Cry WaterColors is a treat for the mind and the imagination.”
………..Jamieson Wolf: book reviewer (The BookPedler) and author (Electric Pink)
