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.

New poem

  Family Circle

At a rest area table
(Like a deserted mission.)
The usual can of pork
And beans, with nothing added
(Like pemmican.)
To make them seem more than
(Like pemmican with dried berries.)
They were, was the only side.
(No fire, nothing cooked.)
The mother prepared simple
(Using grandma’s bread knife.)
Bologna sandwiches, neat,
(Maybe dried beef or buffalo.)
With no mayo or lettuce,
And the common meal
(Nothing fancy but it's hearty.)
Became a summer picnic.
(Food is fuel for the body.)
It evolved into a meal of love
(All for one and one for all.)
And they were like some
Westward pioneers who stopped
(Sitting in the prairie schooner's shade.)
Someplace near here to be
(The ox team needs a rest, too.)
A household for a few minutes.
(Oregon or bust)
