IC Noon Rotary Stories
Posted by Eleanor McClelland on Apr 17, 2014

Christine Scheetz introduced last week’s speakers, Rob Cline, who is Director of Marketing and Communications for Hancher at the U. of Iowa and Dennis Green, who is General Manager for KCCK-FM, our public radio jazz station.

 

A few years ago, Dennis, Rob and their friend Lennox Randon formed a writing group. Their goal was to help one another complete their debut novels. As a result they accomplished that goal and more. Now each of them has a novel to his credit and each is now hard at work on a second novel!  Their story is more than about writing fiction; it is also about the very real challenge Randon is facing and the inspiring way he has chosen to handle it. Although Randon was not available last week, Dennis and Rob agreed to speak about their group, now known as the Writing Lads, their books and their friend, Randon.

 

Dennis began by describing that this three “writing lads” agreed to write 4 pages in one week; this they did and then agreed if this could be accomplished, then they could write a book! More recently Randon is dealing with surgery for stomach cancer. This is terminal. However the book he is working on after his first book, Friends Dogs Bullets Lovers is a mystery novel. Dennis spoke about his recently completed mystery novel, Traveler. The book is described as “Detective Trav Becker’s life is about to get very, very weird.” For more information, go to www.denniswgreen.com. The book is available in bookstores and online in all formats. Dennis and Rob were available after the meeting for questions.

 

Thanks to Christine and the presenters for an interesting program. A book for the Rotary school library in Xicotepec, Mexico will be given in recognition of this program.

 

The Meeting closed with recitation of the 4 Way Test.
