About meCuriosity is a mainstay of my person. I'm a native of Louisiana with deep roots; a licensed Professional Land Surveyor and consultant, enjoy writing and "figuring things out". Most recently I was helping do research at LSU mostly in Geodesy and Subsidence, of course, employing GPS.

About my libraryIf my brain is RAM, my library is long-term mass storage. I am curious about practically everything, which is reflected in my collection.

Hi. You received a copy of Contracts: The Essential Business Desk Reference from Nolo in the November 2010 Early Reviewers batch. I wanted to see what you thought of it.

Nolo Library Sales & Marketing

Not sure if you remember me or not, but you reviewed my novel, Dirty Little
Angels, a while back. I'm writing because I'm almost done with my new novel, In
the Valley of Falling Stars, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in
taking a look at it and giving me your opinion. I can send you a complete
summary, but it's essentially about a mentally-ill man living in post-Katrina
New Orleans who becomes convinced that his wife is pregnant with Jesus Christ.
The book is still in process, but the entire book is sketched out, and I
currently have eight chapters that I feel are done. If you're too busy, I
understand. Just thought I'd ask.

Hope you're doing well,

It was nice meeting you today. I really enjoyed our talk.
I'm free Thursday and Friday? Would that work?

Sorry we haven't gotten together for lunch. LibraryThing contacted me and indicated you were one of the winners of the Early Reviewer Giveaway (for my novel, Dirty Little Angels). Please send me your e-mail address (mine is, and I'll send you a copy of the e-book.

Thanks for entering the giveaway,

Sounds good. I'm on campus on MWF.
I'm in the English Department (Allen Hall).

Sorry for the shameless self-promotion, but I thought you might be interested in my new novel, Dirty Little Angels, since it's set in New Orleans (I'm actually from New Orleans, though I teach at LSU in BR). Here's a brief summary:

Set in the slums of New Orleans, among clusters of crack houses and abandoned buildings, Dirty Little Angels is the story of sixteen year old Hailey Trosclair. When the Trosclair family suffers a string of financial hardships and a miscarriage, Hailey finds herself looking to God to save her family. When her prayers go unanswered, Hailey puts her faith in Moses Watkins, a failed preacher and ex-con. Fascinated by Moses's lopsided view of religion, Hailey, and her brother Cyrus, begin spending time down at an abandoned bank that Moses plans to convert into a drive-through church. Gradually, though, Moses's twisted religious beliefs become increasingly more violent, and Hailey and Cyrus soon find themselves trapped in a world of danger and fear from which there may be no escape.

Here's a link to the first chapter in case you're interested:
