Five years ago, I blogged about discovering author Andrew Coburn's terrific crime novels and how wowed I was by his books. Today I got this note from his daughter:
This is a pivotal time in Andrew Coburn's life. He is my dad. He's written, I think, 14 novels and though he hasn't stopped writing (been writing lots of short stories published online and in university periodicals), he is struggling with a life-threatening illness. His family is around him, of course, but he needs to be reminded there is life beyond the four walls.That his work has been –and more importantly, still is–his lifeblood. I can forward any mail: Cathleen Coburn; 4 Patricia St, WIndham, NH 03087. My email is email@example.com Thank you! If his words have inspired you, touched you or mattered in some way, please let your words do the same for him. My father's daughter, Cathy Coburn
If you are a fan of Coburn's work, now is the time to let him know!
