Many thanks to all of you who voted for The Feud to win the Library of Virginia’s People’s Choice Award. I was fortunate enough to win the award for Skeletons on the Zahara in 2005. Ten years later, it was a thrill to be back on the podium to thank all of the good folks at the Library of Virginia, who do so much to promote literary life in the state. I am currently still doing talks about the Hatfield-McCoy feud and working on a new historical adventure tale. More soon!Read More
A big time in Logan tonight with Hatfields and McCoys from all around the area. Thanks, Debrina, Frankie, Donna and Keith for making it all happen in a big way at the Chief Logan State Park Museum, which now houses indoors the timbers of Wall Hatfield’s cabin.
One of the knowledgeable guys in the hills, up Mate Creek, is Elmer Hatfield. And I’m sure glad THE FEUD meets his approval. I will be seeing Elmer again soon as I am heading to the West Virginia-Kentucky borderland this weekend.
“Being the great grandson of Hogfloyd Hatfield, and having read most of Dean’s Book, I must say that I am impressed at its accuracy. Many events are described exactly the way my Dad and Grandpa told me as a youth.”
