Website update

The website has been updated to reflect GONE 'TIL NOVEMBER and the current tour schedule (more dates to come, including a cool multimedia one I'll have more details on later). And over on the OTHER WRITINGS page, I've added the feature obituary I wrote for Mickey Spillane (above) that appeared in the Star-Ledger in July 2006.

For those who've asked about the long-promised Part Two of my James Lee Burke interview, I'm still trying to locate the transcript, and when I do, I'll post it. It's a good one too, with Burke talking at length about writing, drinking, and the hazards of success. I'm hoping it turns up soon.

Amazing James Lee interview! Been a fan of his since the early '90s. Fortunately I got to meet him about '96 or so when he did a signing at a bookstore I worked at. We became fast pals, chatting for a long while after the crowd dispersed and he signed all the books left over. Terrific guy. Some of those Robicheaux novels are heart-breaking in their poetry. The recent one about Katrina was beautiful, but In the Electric Mist with Confederate Dead I think is my favorite of all. Can't wait to read the rest of the interview, even if it is 20 years old!

Thanks. Sorry for the delay in posting your comment, but the spam has been burying the real comments. I'm working on solving that - and on finding the second JLB transcript.
