Member Since
August 2012


Twenty-one years ago Pamela Foster married her hero. The author’s husband is a disabled Marine, a veteran of Vietnam, a man who would walk through fire for her without ever acknowledging that he ignited the flames. She’s lived in the redwoods of the Pacific Northwest, on the side of a volcano in Hawaii, in the Yucatan beside the Caribbean Sea, the stark desert of southern Arizona, the jungle of Panama, and now lives in the Ozarks of Arkansas. Foster is the author of novels Redneck Goddess and Bigfoot Blues, as well as Clueless Gringos in Paradise, the non-fiction account of her move to Panama with her husband, two suitcases and two giant service dogs.

Winter wind shakes the gnarled fingers of barren trees at a gray sky.  In a few months, those same trees will bud and then burst into bloom, send forth new growth. In the depth of personal loss, we are often reminded by those who seek to provide comfort that joy does, in truth, cometh in the morning. Happiness, these good folks tell us, will return just as spring follows winter....

Part crime fiction, part psychological thriller, and all literary brilliance, I enjoyed Norwegian by Night. The dialogue is funny and terse, the story twists and loops back on itself.

“Louisiana is a fresh-air mental asylum.”
James Lee Burke, Pegasus Descending

James Lee Burke
“And every good artist knows that the gift comes from somewhere else, and it's there for a reason, and that's to make the world a better place.”
James Lee Burke

James Lee Burke
“I sometimes subscribe to the belief that all historical events occur simultaneously, like a dream in the mind of God. Perhaps it is only man who views time sequentially and tries to impose a solar calendar upon it. What if other people, both dead and unborn, are living out their lives in the same space we occupy, without our knowledge or consent?"

The Glass Rainbow, p. 138”
James Lee Burke

James Lee Burke
“In the alluvial sweep of the land, I thought I could see the past and the present and the future all at once, as though time were not sequential in nature but took place without a beginning or an end, like a flash of green light rippling outward from the center of creation, not unlike a dream inside the mind of God.”
James Lee Burke

James Lee Burke
“Then the sun broke above the crest of the hills and the entire countryside looked soaked in blood, the arroyos deep in shadow, the cones of dead volcanoes stark and biscuit-colored against the sky. I could smell pinion trees, wet sage, woodsmoke, cattle in the pastures, and creek water that had melted from snow. I could smell the way the country probably was when it was only a dream in the mind of God.”
James Lee Burke, Jesus Out to Sea
