Frayed Edge Press author Daniel Hales recently participated in a virtual poetry reading organized by the Warwick Free Public Library, in Warwick, MA.
Daniel read from his recent book of poems, ¿Cómo Hacer Preguntas? or How To Make Questions: 69 Instructional Poems in English and answered audience questions over Zoom.
A profile of Daniel and the virtual reading appeared in the Greenfield Recorder -- "Local author explores 'the spaces from which questions arise' with latest poetry book," written by Zack DeLuca. Daniel reflected on his writing process, the interplay of his music and his poetry, and how he recognizes when something's about to become a poem or song.
"The poems take readers on a journey and interrogate everything from the mundane through poems like 'How To Pass The Time,' to thoughts of fading love in 'How to Change Your Mind.'”

Like a good, fast-paced crime story? Are you someone who can appreciate the "ironic contrast between tropical paradise and dirty dealing"? Like a strong female lead? Meet Officer Jenny Freitas as she races to solve a series of murders on the Big Island of Hawaii, even as evidence is being gobbled up by the lava flow from the angry goddess Pele.
"Tucher made a good choice in setting the story in the midst of Kilauea’s eruption. It is not only an unusual adversary, akin to a hurricane or an avalanche, it adds an overlay of dread to the story – things are out of control. . . . Pele’s Domain is a quick fun read!" -- Vicki Weisfeld in Crime Fiction Lover
Pele's Domain by Albert Tucher
