Book Signing "Patch of Dirt"
This is from "The Echo" Wilmington's Weekly Alternative Paper
12:30 PM | Sunday Feb 5, 2017 Old Books on Front St. 249 N. Front St. Wilmington, NC A 65-year-old veteran of the Vietnam War, with physical and psychological wounds, Frank Hill is the doting husband of 25-year-old Rita, a spitfire and a looker who knows what it’s like to be coveted, controlled, and consumed by men. Frank owns a nice little ranch—the kind of place Joe once dreamed about having and sharing—that, as he recently found, sits on oil. Suddenly rich, and about to get richer, Frank has the means to give Rita everything she wants—except a baby. So, he sets out to hire a stud. At first, Joe seems like the man the Hills have been looking for. No one expects Rita to have feelings for Joe—or for Joe to feel conflicted about sleeping with a woman for money. What happens before it all ends gets complicated by Rita’s possessive ex-lover and pimp, by Frank’s tormented bond with his ex-wife, and by Joe’s awakening ability to forgive one woman for rejecting him and another for abandoning him.
