Louise Wilson, of the Islamorada community of the Florida Keys, commented on Heavy Wait at the author’s website www.goodmorningfloridakeys.com:
I ordered ‘Heavy Wait’ about a month ago and it arrived in the mail Friday. I finished it last night. Could hardly put it down and if my eyes had cooperated a little longer I could have gotten through it in the wee hours of the morning on Saturday.
I enjoyed it very much, laughed out loud (heartily) many times and enjoyed the twists and turns and surprises. I think you should write another novel soon. And I can say, I would look forward to reading it. For now I think I will read, ‘Kill All The Lawyers.’
The author, me, replied:
I’m glad you enjoyed Heavy Wait. You must be crazy.
I wrote Kill All the Lawyers? – A Client’s Guide to Hiring, Firing, Using and Suing Lawyers, in 1985. My farewell to the practice of law. Nothing like Heavy Wait, which was from the spiritual dimension. More like something Ralph Nader might have written in 1985, Kill All the Lawyers? was. Heavy Wait killed a few lawyers, though, and I imagine it would kill a lot more, if lawyers were to read it. A different kind of killing, of course. A few clients of lawyers get what’s coming to them, too; as happened in Kill All the Lawyers?, but in different ways.
What I sometimes wondered was, would I write a sequel to Heavy Wait?
Maybe I should write a novel entitled “Kill all the Humans.” Not necessarily in the gun and bullet sense exactly, but probably some of them might be better off to be taken out that way.
Ha Ha Ha ~ I’m glad you enjoyed “Heavy Wait.” You must be crazy. ~ You may be right.
From your post ~ “Heavy Wait” killed a few lawyers, though, and I imagine it would kill a lot more, if lawyers were to read it. A different kind of killing, of course . . . ~ Of course.
And last, but not least ~ Maybe I should write a novel entitled “Kill all the Humans.”
Just write another novel. Begin.
Me to Louise, whom I have known since I was 18 years old – I’m now 71:
Tell me, Louise. Do you nag your husband and relatives and friends, too? But then, maybe you herald a new novel coming out of me. If so, She, that is, my Muse will make her sentiments known when she’s ready, and if history is any test, she will be insistent. Sloan
