It is with a heavy heart that I read this morning that Arkansas executed a human being last night and is still fighting legal battles to execute seven more in the month of April. My birthplace has had a love affair with executions for a long time going back to when the Democrats controlled both houses of the legislature and every constitutional office, so its love affair is not partisan or unique to the current Republican Governor and Attorney General. Whatever is in the water in my home state that makes its leaders thirsty for blood needs removal.
I had a wonderful time in Charleston at the Charleston Library Society . Every author should be so lucky as I was to have this opportunity. I also have been to wonderful book clubs in Charlotte and Dallas, and speak to the Matthews, NC Rotary next Monday. At every book event I receive lots of excellent feedback that helps me with my next books.
