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!
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...

Bill i think you are a very lucky man. Great interview i read it all and the two of you seem to make a great team. Congrstulate Kate for me please.
Bill, that was a great interview.
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.

Very cool Bill. Wow, Submitting a poem a day. That's some dedication, on both your parts!
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.)
