    Doorlink is Famous!

    Hey, folks,

    An editor heard Doorlink's story and decided to interview her! The whole thing went up today:

    Kate Fitzpatrick's Interview

    She even put in a reference to woodworking!

    What a wonderful girl!

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Very interesting Bill and you do have a great partner.
    I found this interesting near the bottom of the page.

    I didn't know Texas was a country...

    Great read. I like the idea of how you got back into your poetry. Probably could use that in some of the tasks of my life. Perhaps I'll make a deal with my wife.

    Really nice interview, I don't know if this question has been asked and answered here or not, but is there a story behind the name "Doorlink"?

    Bill, I'm not sure, but I think you got called a lazy, indolent mule in that article. Twice, in fact.

    Great article. It explains part of how you've been managing to get published or received awards several times a week. Doorlink may be crucial to getting the poems out there, but of course she couldn't do it without the help of a pretty special mule. (I always pictured you as more of a hyperfluous ibex myself.)

    You evidently don't know may Texans... we all know and think Texas is a world all it's own....
