    The first volume of New Rotvrier Review will contain poetry and an essay based on interviews with Furman graduate Thomas Rain Crowe.  His involvement in the second renaissance of beat poetry in San Francisco in the 1970s will be covered.  Also, his experiences through publication of over thirty books including  "Writing the Wind: A Celtic Resurgence," a book chosen as reading material for various Celtic studies programs, will be included in the first volume of the poetry magazine in May. 

    Our open reading period closes officially on March 20th.  The inclusion of more poets from South Carolina would be a plus for our Easley-based poetry magazine.  Please submit your work following the submission guidelines on our website.  We look forward to being amazed by you.

          I hope you will join me for the release of my sixth book, the mystery/suspense novel Through Any Window,  at a March 5, 2024, launch party at Cafe And Then Some, 101 College St., Greenville. It's a drop-in from 5 to 7:30 PM. 

            For those of you familiar with Greenville, my good friend Mary Louise Earle McDaniel Hampton Pinckney will say a few words. One can only assume she will detest the book.

                       Book release date: January 16, 2024, by Red Adept Publishing

                   As pastor of Greenville, SC’s Triune Mercy Center from 2005 to 2020, Deb Richardson-Moore watched the gentrification that transformed the neighborhoods around the church and around nearby Unity Park. She uses this setting for the fictional Southern city Greenbrier in her newest release, Through Any Window.

                    Riley Masterson has moved to her cousin’s home in South Carolina, eager to escape the chaos that has overwhelmed her life. Questioned in a murder in Alabama, she has spent eighteen months under suspicion by a sheriff’s office unable to make an arrest.

                But things in Greenbrier are not as they seem. Her cousin has an ulterior motive for inviting Riley into her home, and pieces of Riley’s past shadow her. As she struggles to forge a new life, forces gather in the tension-plagued neighborhood where homeless people live in the shadows of glitzy new homes and crumbling mill houses.  

                When murder explodes, someone unexpected is caught in the crossfire. Detectives are left to ponder: Are the deaths personal or the result of rich and poor living in such close proximity? And will Riley take the blame as someone has so meticulously planned?

                Here’s what the reviewer for Greenville bookstore Fiction Addiction had to say: “Through Any Window is a fantastic mystery that could easily have happened in any growing town in the south. It examines gentrification which leads to eviction and then homelessness. It is a thought-provoking look at how people end up homeless and what an uphill battle they then have. It is also, unfortunately, an all too realistic look at what money and greed can do.”

         For more information, contact Deb at or 864-230-7575.
