Billy and his wife, Joanne, live with their two children in the foothills of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains. A product of his small-town locale, Billy counts as assets his rural authenticity, unwavering sense of purpose, and insatiable curiosity--all of which tend to make his front porch a comfortably crowded place.

What you doOur daughter is but a few days away from joining the ranks of legal drivers in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

In preparation (as well as to decrease, however slightly, a father’s angst), I’ve done my best to offer whatever advice and warnings I can. Don’t speed. Don’t text. Don’t pick up hitchhikers. Always do your best to avoid hitting dogs and rabbits and raccoons, but don’t worry about squirre...

“Some pasts exist as a fog that rolls in and out of the present, formed not by air that condenses into mist but memories that condense into tiny doors that open to forgotten moments. Maybe you glance at a stranger on a crowded street who reminds you of a childhood friend or hear a song that was popular the first summer you fell in love, and in the space of that single beat of time you are flung backward to a who or when long past. And yet it is only for that one beat. Those tiny doors never remain open for long for most of us. They ensure our former times are kept as relics, and the dust upon them is wiped clean only occasionally”
Billy Coffey, The Devil Walks in Mattingly

“All darkness needs to spread is for a bunch of people to stand around and do nothing. You know that.”
Billy Coffey, The Curse of Crow Hollow

“If you're hungry enough...even poison tastes good.”
Billy Coffey, When Mockingbirds Sing

Cathy LaGrow I am so confused.

I'm adding books like a banshee, but I can't figure any of the rest of it out. I appear to be "following" 2 random people, one of whom I don't know.
