Although he looks serious in his author's photo on the left (courtesy of the Rendezvous Cafe website) Bill is a funny man with a hearty laugh who always manages to bring smiles to the faces of everyone in the group.
Bill has belonged to Coffee and Critique writers' group (which meets at the Rendezvous Cafe on Tuesday mornings) for a couple years and has two stories in the Coffee and Critique Anthology, which was published in 2013.
Bill has read many of the stories in his Interludes and Lunch collection during our weekly critique group meetings, and the guys are particularly fond of them. In fact, one of the guys told Bill that he was his hero.
Although some of the women in the group joke about Bill's "a guy walks into a bar in a foreign country and meets a younger woman" stories, we all recognize Bill's vivid descriptions, ear for dialogue, and eye for detail.
His signing will take place on Saturday, May 31, from 1-4 p.m. at the Rendezvous Cafe on Main Street in O'Fallon, Missouri.
Bill is especially proud of the fact that his daughter designed the cover art for his short story collection. Note: thanks to Rendezvous website for the jpeg of the cover and author head shot.
