WILLIAMS—It was a hot, sweaty Saturday morning in the little City of Williams. The shade of the taped, parchment colored tarp covering the dirt courtyard surrounded by the western town of the Wild West Junction.

Surrounding me, drug deals are looming. Political corruption reigns as money changes hands for power and favor. Murder is a way of life.

I’m covering the monthly meeting of the Northern Arizona Authors Association in Williams at the Wild West Junction.

The Northern Arizona Authors group meets in various locations once a month around 10 o’clock. The idea is to read portions of their latest works for critique and to encourage writers and potential writers. Anyone is welcome and there are no dues. If you are an author, you can bring a portion of your work to read.

If you have not started, perhaps this is the inspiration you will need to release that one book inside of you.
