About Author:

Clyde Curley

I was born into a Navy family, and as a consequence I grew up all over the country, with forays to Spain and North Africa, providing me with childhood experiences that profoundly affected my view of the world, its peoples, and their joys and problems.After graduating from high school in Hawaii, I took most of a year to work picking fruit, washing dishes before settling in California in the mid 60s to attend college B.A S.F State, 1968 As one can imagine, this, too, was a cultural experience all its own Following these years and marriage to my high school pal, Susan Allison I commenced a 31 year career teaching high school English in Oregon, retiring from a wholly satisfying, partially exhausting life as a teacher in 2001 Almost immediately, after moving first to Friday Harbor and then Bellingham, Washington, I began work on Raggedy Man, which is now available for your delectation and purchase There is much to say about this project, not least that while it strives to tell a ripping good mystery yarn, it also carries the kind of political and philosophical baggage one might find in a mainstream novel But I ll leave that up to the reader to discover and to judge.Reading and books always than simply a professional imperative Bette Midler was a classmate and good friend during my senior year in high school At the time, she accused me not the right word, actually of not living life fully, but rather living it through books At the time, and for some years after, I fretted and worried over this remark, but that was a long time ago I do live an active life, but a life in books needs no excuse or even explanation In its own right it is a deeply powerful, endlessly rewarding, emotionally stimulating, and intellectually challenging pursuit I offer praise to any and all who live a life in books Or, precisely, reading of any kind that allows the individual consciousness to interact fully with cultural and political life To this end, I am a fan of the classic circulating magazine that tries to do it all The New Yorker, Harper s, The Atlantic Monthly, The New York Review of Books, etc My reading time is spent as much in those pages as it is in the latest novel, biography, or history or in the classic works of fiction that I keep going back to not, while we re at it, forgetting Shakespeare oh, yes, Shakespeare.I need to add that the relatively small but incredibly active world of folk music captured a part of my soul and being many years ago The old fiddle tunes of the British Isles, French Canada, and rural America especially Appalachia give me a deep and enduring jolt every time I pick up a fiddle, guitar, or mandolin To this end, I am active in playing music in various bands for country dances all over the Pacific Northwest, and have been for years This interest led me to assisting Sue Songer of Portland in producing the popular tune book series The Portland Collection also available for purchase.Now I am learning to write fiction, and I am having a hell of a good time doing so I am throwing everything I know about how good books should read, even feel, if that makes any sense It s a fun business It s a serious business And I hope you readers out there enjoy the fruits of my labors.
