About Seneca Fox

Hello, and thank you for considering my book. If you haven't read it, I hope you will.

Thanks to a particularly good teacher, I love literature. The most memorable moment in my literary life occurred when that teacher helped me to understand the relevance of Huckleberry Finn's deliberations about sending the letter to Mrs. Watson. The historical context as well as Huck's age and state of mind were explained well by my teacher.... not to mention, life on the river vs the troubled episodes on the land, the many depravities of man and the subtle Midwestern and Southern dialects that Twain apparently got right.

As for my writing, it's simple. I just want to write - to leave myself behind after I'm gone. The process of writing is rewarding, but it's hard work that requires dedication. Whether or not I have anything of value to offer will be decided by the reader. So, if you read my book, I'd appreciate your feedback - I'll try to do better next time.

If you are interested, I have written a few other short pieces available at these links:

As for a website, blog, etc., I'm "old school"... not electronically available for correspondence.

Take care
