I (almost) always listen to my dad; he's full of sage, fatherly wisdom. But tomorrow I'm especially excited to listen to him as he reads his in-progress novel on Maine's community radio station! The novel is based on a real life art fraud (he writes for the Maine Antique Digest, so this is kind of his thing.) He and I trade manuscripts and editorial advice so I've seen several versions of the story, but I'm excited to hear the polished piece he's reading tomorrow. A long time ago he was also a radio DJ for a folk music show; he has a great dramatic voice:) You can listen in here Thursday at 10AM eastern time (the three writers are being interviewed after the local and national specials).
PS I was looking for a specific picture of my dad on my other blog (our family blog) and couldn't find it, so I tried googling his name, thinking it might bring up that blog. But it brought up this old high school picture of him- isn't it adorable? The picture of the four of us is from a Christmas party last year where we were singing an old English caroling song. For some reason it makes me laugh every time I look at it, I don't know why. The other two are just cute pictures of him with Viv: bundled up for a winter walk, and feeding her some dessert at my brother's wedding.
