MURDER on 15/501 For Sale on (Book) - 8/27/2010 12:47:28 AM
“Chatham author completes 21st book” The Chatham Record June 18, 2009 by Bill Wilcox Chatham author Larry Rochelle has just completed his 21st book, a thriller titled “Murder on 15/501,” that is set in the bucolic, rolling hills north of Pittsboro. The fictional setting for his book is Highway 15/501, which, provides entrances into the villages of Fearrington and Deerington, two communities with opposing viewpoints on life. Fearrington is a quiet, up-scale older community of forests, deer and croquet, but Deerington presents a huge contrast with condos built in the style of Route 66 motels with garish colors, neon lights and loud music during the daylight hours. And, at night, Deerington becomes one big party scene with dancing, romancing and a Las Vegas spirit. “Out of these contrasts evolves an intricate murder scheme to bring Deerington Village down,” Rochelle said. “And in its place, the Old Testament God will rule, and Chapel Hill folks will learn to love America again.” Rochelle has had a prolific writing career and a successful one. He has won many awards for his writing, including the 2009 EPPIE National Award for his collection of poetry “Burnt Coffee.” And he has written all of his books using just one finger. “Yep, I’m a one-finger typist,” he said. “I started that way in high school. We had a very old Underwood typewriter and there was no way I could type normally on it. The keys took too much power to push down.” With each book averaging 50,000 words, that’s at least 250,000 keystrokes per book. “It takes a long time,” he said. “Until this book, I tried to get 2000 words a week, or as many as 5000, so that after nine months I have a book almost ready.” But the latest book “Murder on 15-501” took much longer because of the real-life killing that happened down the road. “I couldn’t type much at all,” he said. I could only type a couple of sentences. I couldn’t get into it. It just really inhibited me. I write murder for fun. Here was a real murder, a tragedy.” He said the murder of UNC Student Body President Eve Carson also hindered his ability to write. But now the novel is finished. He will have a reading at McIntyre’s next year. In the meantime the book can be ordered from and Rochelle’s career as an author follows decades of work as an educator. He taught junior high and high school for 15 years in Ohio. In 1978 he earned his masters’ degree and took a job in Overland Park, Kansas, as a writing center director at Johnson County Community College. After two years he went back into the classroom and spent 28 years teaching English Composition, Film and Science Fiction. After moving to Fearrington Village he taught Study Skills for two years at Central Caro-lina Community College before retiring this spring. He was a member of the writers group at Fearrington for awhile, especially with the poetry group but hasn’t written a poem in a year, which he says is another aftereffect of the murder. But his writers’ block is lifting and he has high hopes for the success of his new book, which will be entered in the 2010 EPPIES in July.

I liked the comparison of "the Wizard and the King, working magic under skies rife with whirling tombs, dodging poisonous snakes raking the fields." Really shows how wonderful life really is.

The Muse Is Gone (Poetry) - 12/25/2012 11:12:54 AM
It begins it. I have been here before, as I could tell. For finding: that myself I have reborn But not seen, is forever to persist To gather around the seasons of space with the everlastingness of event With the layered energy as it is made of things. Into the logical fiber of the tribute: a thought arises And stays on course, slowly progressing, not done. By fear: the fear that’s been since forever, In the same space the inseparable normal good Being passed through mankind Came accessible to me: I fade into remoteness

Father's Day--1959 (Poetry) - 9/20/2012 7:26:03 AM
The day was short. the thoughts were long. my pen hand ready. my creased fingers jerked to move. my time slipping away. bright sunny days. and the moment flew on to the next way along ahead. no notice or turning of head. moments and time stepping on.

Attention Wal-Mart Shoppers (Poetry) - 12/5/2007 10:37:27 PM
Sadly, a lot of what you buy EVERYWHERE is foreign made. It is getting so "made in America" is going the way of the dinosaur. God bless you. Kathy

Attention Wal-Mart Shoppers (Poetry) - 12/5/2007 6:32:32 PM
Right on. But I like the fact that you can find goods from more than China now. I like trading with different countries. I believe it comes back to us in better relationships. It's just that we need to make and manufacture in the USA also. Then the footing would be more equal. Child labor, no way and I don't care what nation it is in. And I don't like the Kid's Nation survival show stressing out children for entertainment. I saw 5 minutes and watched no more. Great poem. Liz

Attention Wal-Mart Shoppers (Poetry) - 12/5/2007 1:01:25 PM
Having worked in minimum wage jobs, I have a certain point of view when it comes to employee/customer relations. I think it's hard for a lot of min. wage workers to care about people if they feel their workplace doesn't care for them. Maybe that's hard for some to understand. But consider that with things like rising gas prices, it's harder for lower wage workers to make ends meet if their standard of living is not increased appropriately. I was lucky to work very close to my home. But a lot of people I worked with lived further away. And traveling gets harder when prices increase faster than wages. This is only one issue, but one that people with higher paying jobs may not consider. Especially when many wal-mart customers make more money than the people greeting them.

Attention Wal-Mart Shoppers (Poetry) - 12/5/2007 12:58:20 PM
Funny but how true, I like this.

Attention Wal-Mart Shoppers (Poetry) - 12/5/2007 10:59:28 AM
very well written. This points out a much bigger problem than what greetings we use. Larry

Attention Wal-Mart Shoppers (Poetry) - 12/5/2007 9:19:06 AM
They also discriminate against people who are disabled or older. I know; it happened to me. I was fired on account of my age/disability. Sad! Never did persue it; who's gonna win against a giant like Wal*Mart?? It's crazy!! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :(

Attention Wal-Mart Shoppers (Poetry) - 12/5/2007 6:32:36 AM
Sam Walton would be rolling over in his grave if he saw the monster Wal Mart has become...shame. An excellent, SPOT ON write, Larry, well done. Problem is, the only store 'round these parts is Wal Mart, or else I'd avoid it at all costs. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla. Worked there for three weeks, they fired my twin sister because of age and disability--too slow--how you gonna fight Wal Mart????

Hemingway Tried First (Poetry) - 11/7/2007 8:29:38 PM
Larry, Someone determined enough to die will find a way--have even seen people will themselves to death. They give up. Fortunately, in my case, I never carried through. Look at what I would have missed out on: my words, for one! Sadness in these lines, well penned. However, I don't think Hemingway was the first: I think Judas was, when he hung himself after betraying Christ with a kiss. Could be others, earlier than that... (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Hemingway Tried First (Poetry) - 11/7/2007 7:11:20 PM
Your poem is food for thought, for a lifetime. The direction of our life is our choice, and sometimes the choice will end with our death - be it through stupidity, carelessness, or our own hand. Kathy

A Domestic (Poetry) - 11/5/2007 7:58:57 AM
Domestic violence is becoming a bigger and bigger problem with each day. I can't understand this. It breaks my heart whenever I hear of a murder/suicide resulting from this violence. Your poem is well written and the message is clear, as are the images. Kathy

How Do You Say Good-bye (Poetry) - 10/23/2007 10:57:44 AM
Rather like "if a tree falls in the forest, does it make a sound?" But, I think you can still say "good-bye" if only for yourself. Closure is always a good thing in life. Kathy

Black Widow's Bite (Poetry) - 10/22/2007 6:11:13 PM
GAD I hate spiders: thank you, Larry, if I have nightmares of arachnids, I'm blaming you!! Very creepy, but effectively penned. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla. What I fear more than Widows are brown recluse: been bitten four times by them. *cringe*

Deep Woods at the Botanical (Poetry) - 10/16/2007 7:19:05 AM
It makes me really mad - high society events replete with staggering amounts of food for "goofy" causes and the aftermath of food waste. And, then the homeless "feast" on what's leftover. Wouldn't it be amazing if they had such a feast and invited the homeless to eat. But, then of course the socialites wouldn't attend. Arghhh! Kathy

I guess it just shows that government and religion should be kept seperate. Just think though...with lower taxes, that crowd would have alot more money to help those in need instead of paying for an inept goverment beauracracy that is incapable of managing the most trivial affairs ($12 for a loaf of white bread is what you get with that). Edwin

well i had to go and check out what the word 'lux' meant coz id never heard of it before. i think what youre saying here is beautiful in that it isnt the purchase itself but also the way it is presented that brings the glow to the heart/face of the person presented it. and even if something goes awry and the two split up for whatever reason they will both still remember the way love was presented... be it in a huge 'marry me now' at a baseball game kinda way or a 'what this ring doing in my glass' kinda way... interesting idea.

Mixed-Up in Religion (Poetry) - 8/8/2007 5:21:35 AM
id love to go to an ice cream social. i have no idea what one is but if it involves ice cream... but im thinking youve been to one too many? and hung out with these people who dont swear, dont tell rude jokes [or seem to have any sense of humour at all] and have felt completely uncomfortable. i think its crazy but you have painted a completely accurate picture of conservative christian like ppl. you know... i go to church and my pastor never fails to shock me. i will ALWAYS remember when my best friend spat her drink through her nose at my birthday BBQ when the pastor told someone to step out of his sunlight coz he was a solar powered sex machine [being bald and all] YE GODS!! HAHAHAH! anyways yup... a lot of religious people do live so far from reality its hard to connect with them...

Larry, "...hiding themselves in the crowd, swarming forward, trying to see the violence and secretly hoping for the mystique of cruelty, ...." GAD what strong images these lines hold: the very same ones who listened to His teachings, who were healed by His hands, who believed, betrayed Him at the end.
