Doctor Becca Writes A Prescription
I was especially intrigued with his Azteca romance in The Winter of Our Content story - so passionate, so full of promise and so totally deflating when they ended their glorious affair. Thus, I had my downs and ups...
Then, there was the Booze, Blues & Bible-bangers tale. How many of us have been to the French Quarter to experience a transitional life we are unfamiliar with? I was engulfed in the sounds of jazz and blues, bending my elbow with a glass of booze, and hearing the cry of a seven-year-old son of a prostitute begging for money and promoting his mother's offer of a good time. How could I relate to that, except through the author's efforts to make these characters real. I could also taste the cajun cooking as new aromas filled the air and penetrated deep within me.
