This is exactly the kind of thing we were hoping for when "The Disappeared" was launched. Alison Gordon was alerted to my post about her by a reader and posted in the comments section, which I'll repeat on the main page:
Eek, what a shock! I was directed to your site by a reader just recently. I feel as if I'm reading my own obituary.How cool is that. Thanks, Alison!
But really, I haven't disappeared. I am simply living happily ever after.
The series was curtailed because I felt I had gone as far as I could go with Kate, not because of lack of interest by my publisher. (On the contrary, as a matter of fact.)
Ocassionally, a bunch of my Presbyterian ancesters show up in the middle of the night to inform me, in heavy Scots accents, that I am wasting my God-given talent. So far, I have managed to drive them off.
Will I write another book? Possibly.
PS For the baseball fans, let me recommend one of my favourite baseball novels, which has not received the recognition it deserves. The Greatest Slump of All Time, by David Carkeet, ranks among the best -- among which I certainly include The Universal Baseball Association (etc). Don't know how available it is, but it is a real gem.
