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.

Writing goals

Robert B. Parker has been an enormous influence on my writing. First, I appreciate the brevity he accomplishes with well-written dialogue. Second, his goal of writing one chapter a day makes sense to me; I've adopted that goal --- a chapter a day --- when I'm working in a novel.

Poems, on the other hand, are less expansive.  My goal with poetry is one poem a week. I need more time to consider each word.

What do you think?
