Willy Writers

Next up for “Crashers” is a gig with my old friends, Willamette Writers. The event is set for 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday at The Old Church, at the corner of Southwest 11th and Clay in downtown Portland.

Willy Writers gave me a cardiac arrest this week when friends started sending me e-mails saying, “Haynes! Spielberg? Congrats, dude!” After I picked myself up off the floor, I checked the WW site and, sure enough, they said “Crashers” would be directed by Steven Spielberg in 2011.

They had me mixed up with another writer and, when I brought it to the attention of their Web person, it was quickly removed. But not before my aneurism, thank you. But before that (being the ever-lovin’ optimist) I literally called my agent, Janet, and said, “Um, anything you need to tell me?” Hey, it didn’t hurt to ask.

Anyway, the wondrous Cynthia Herself Whitcomb (adore. her.) will be there, and she’s more than worth the price of admission. This should be a good gig. See you there?

  1. Please tell me you are at work on another. I began “Crashers” over the weekend and am almost finished. I have been an avid reader for many years (literally thousands of books) and can’t remember when I last was “hooked” by one as I am this one. I have recommended it to 2 people already. Thank you for the enjoyment!

  2. I really enjoyed reading Crashers. It’s one of the best thrillers I’ve read in a long time. The tension was continuous. And at 70, I’ve read a lot of them.

  3. Oct 31 just finished Crashers loved it loved it a great thriller mystery adventure when is the nexrone??!!
