I'm speaking three times this week all related to surviving seventh grade and a boy's first diary. I love reading from these books, lots of fun. It's nice to go back and be a 10-year-old or a 13-year-old in reading from these books. my wife says that's where I belong anyway.

I realized after coming back from our cruise on the Civil War sites in the south how much I really did like the Civil War poems that I wrote for my book "In the Cat's Eye". They always have had a strong meaning for me based on the importance of that war in our history. Now they speak to me in Even stronger language. I hope you all love them as much as I do.

I am just starting a blog to go with my website at I will use this site to communicate with readers and fill you in on upcoming events. I am currently doing a round of speaking events at various Rotary clubs in New Hampshire.  In the next two months I will be speaking in Hopkinton, Manchester, Derry, Concord, Hollis, and Bedford. i will also be doing a poetry reading at Gibson's bookstore in Concord on July 17th at 7PM.
I hope you will come and listen if you get a chance.
I also will be doing the Concord Farmer's Market on Saturday in Concord.
I hope you have had a chance to read the new book, Surviving Seventh Grade. It's a hoot and will bring back many memories, even if you didn't grow up in the fifties.
talk to you soon.
