To all my Sage to Meadow followers! I am pleased to announce to you the Jack Matthews, PhD, Author Page for my novels.
So much of my blogging on Sage to Meadow–in fact, nearly all of it–concerns humanity’s relationship to nature on a concrete level: grasses, birds, water, sky, trees, flowers.
I continue those themes on my Author Page.
As I have written in My About page on Sage to Meadow, “What I seek to accomplish in Sage to Meadow blog is to write about nature, wild and domesticated living things, people that live with the land and the constant cycles of the seasons that envelop our lives.” In novelistic form, I will continue working with those themes. For example, here is a quote from Death at La Osa, my first novel of the River Who Knows? cycle.
“Quail Looks Away set her pails down and attended the words as best she could understand. A sudden wind blew dust across the plaza and stirred the cottonwood trees along the river, the leaves rattling softly when green and luscious and filled with moisture. Yellowed leaves fell with the wind. Soon all cottonwood leaves would turn yellow, falling in the stream and collecting along the banks. Quail would swish away the leaves with her hand to get un-leaved water for her kitchen. Rio Tulona was also called Rio Cottonwood, for along its banks, leaves carpeted the ground.”
I think you can see how I have carried the themes of Sage to Meadow over to my Author Page.
Please take a moment and visit my Author Page and look at Chapter 1 of the novel, Death at La Osa, set in northern New Mexico with its desert mesas and high country of the Sangre de Cristos and Tusas Mountains. Sign up for the Author Page and get new posts and the news.
