Have you read my latest book: "No Hand To Hold"?

(Society of Professional Journalists)
An enduring story of sorrow and the quest for survival. With
much of it told in a first-person voice which is authentic
and touching. This novels visual and sensual power creates the
ability to conjure up landscapes so vivid they can make the here
and now simply ~ fade away. The wind and snow, the sun, lengthy
shadows and the sounds...they’re all here!
The author’s astonishing precision of imagery, verb choices,
sentence cadence and rhythm, is most compelling. A clever
rhythmic style like I’ve never seen before. His phrasing and
paragraphs read much like that of a poet-storyteller. There are
a lot of little poems and vignettes. In fact, the story line at times
reads like a song. This seems to give him the vehicles to tell some
compelling little stories within the ‘story’. A fascinating era and
a remarkable tale.
I actually feel that he may have written this retro-saga on his
Underwood typewriter.

Recently, someone described Curt’s style as -
“Like skating in Central Park on a crisp December day.”
His response was -
“Unlike the real world, writing allows one very special privilege…
wish it and it will be. This seems to be the easiest way to go where I wish
to go with whomever I wish.”

“Little Boy Lost”
But with a sad soul...
In the sun, he’ll go wanderin’...
And under rainclouds too...
Often, just a cold restless wind...
Stumblin’ all around...
Walkin’ down a road to nowhere...
In clothes - all hand me downs...
He can’t go home...
He has no home...
Yet - as always...
He looks up to God…
No dreams to leave behind...
He cannot die...the night is young...
‘Must survive...
‘Till his final song is sung...
And this little boy is found!
