FTTM Boca Beacon Interview

Joe Cundiff – Author Interview with Jack Short – Boca Beacon

Today I was interviewed by Jack Short, a writer for the Boca Beacon.  It seems he found out about my book Fly To The Moon On A Witch’s Broom and wants to do a feature story in Boca Grande’s weekly newspaper about the story’s ties to the island in Florida.

Further, it was on one of those trips when Jackie Frackelton was inspired to make a retired witch part of the turtle patrol.

This Moment By Joe Cundiff   The wind blows A melodious whirl Whispering through evergreens Dancing with the clatter Of leaves dangling And pushing piles Of the fallen Swirling, twirling Along the ridge And across the meadow Subsiding then to a gentle hush And the silent peaceful Sounds of light And this moment Should it …
