Monday Morning Musings

As you saw from the picture I posted yesterday on Facebook, I had a lot of fun at the TOPS conference on the weekend. There were over 100 delegates and all but one of them were female. I was the guest presenter and, in addition to a few serious thoughts , I read three of my stories…. two from my book which I had received from the printers the day before. The third was “Heat Wave” which I saved for the very end. I thought that this was an ideal venue to test drive my story on menopause. Just in case things didn’t pan out, I parked my car at the entrance of the parking lot ,close to the main road, in order to make a quick getaway. I am happy to report that I managed to escape unscathed and sold close to two dozen books to boot. This was a warm and wonderful group of people. They obviously know how to have fun.

And, yes, “Heat Wave” will appear in tomorrow’s Casket and will be up on my website around suppertime.

Did you know that I played football for St.F.X. back in the early ’70’s? And did you see my grad photo on this page a few weeks ago? Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a helmet that will fit over an afro? By a quirk of fate, I found myself doing the punting chores for the football team one fateful year. I was actually the equipment manager at the time but somehow I ended up playing for one year. I believe that this was the year that X started a long slide in that sport. In any event, I wrote a story about all the sports being played in the Fall along with my 10 seconds of fame ( actually it was 10 seconds of terror! ) . The story is called ” A Fall to Remember” and will be coming soon.

We’re still tinkering with the new website, including some video footage of the Len and Phil show from a few weeks ago. Hope to have this up and running in the not too distant future.

If you just can’t wait for my book launch ( Dec.5th. )  and need to purchase some books right away ( to send overseas to your loved ones ), they are available at Brendan’s Fairway and  Brosha’s Short Stoppe. You can also contact my editor, Clare Lazzuri at 735-2443.

Enjoy this? Visit the rest of my website to enjoy more of my work or buy my books!
