Welcome to Larry Andrews' website.

Greetings and welcome to my blog spot.

I've written two novels since my retirement in 2008. The first is a romance, Songs of Sadness, Songs of Love. The second is an action/mysteryThe China-Africa Parallax: A Ryan and Gillian Mystery.

Among the textbooks I have written areLinguistics for L2 Teachers, Mahwah, NJ, Lawrence Earlbaum Associates, 2001; and Language Exploration and Awareness: A Resource Book for Teachers, 3rd edition, Mahwah, NJ, Lawrence Earlbaum Associates, 2006. This textbook was translated into Korean by Pagijong Press, Seoul, South Korea. 2010.

I am presently writing my third Ryan and Gillian novel, The Nathan Culper Brotherhood. You can follow my progress on novel #3 here at this blog site.

To order any of my titles please go either to nook.com or amazon.com (Kindle users can go to the Kindle Store.).

What do you love?

         Most churches and many homes have Advent wreaths. Each Sunday in Advent a candle is lighted, symbolizing, weekly in this order: Peace, Hope, Joy, Faith and Love.
         Christmas Day brings the Love candle and at first glance, this seems an easy symbol to interpret because we know about Love.
         We love our family, we love our friends, we love our pets, and a whole bunch other things we say we love.
         For example, we love ice cream and cake; we love Stilton cheese; we love barbecued ribs; we love the Huskers; we love a big, fat, juicy hamburger; we love a special kind of pizza.        
         In American English and in American culture the word love is scattered and 
thrown around like confetti at a New Year’s party. I’m trying to use love more sparingly and and more intentionally.
