A Note from Dorien
Simon Writes" features one of the most comprehensive interviews
Dorien has ever given...so much so that it will be presented in two
parts. The first part can be seen by clicking here.
The second part can be seen here.
If there is anything you might want to know about either Dorien or
alter ego Roger, it may well be found here.
is starting a "Newsletter" on Authorsden
to reach out to those who
don't connect with him frequently elsewhere. It will be something of a
catch-all, including such things as excerpts from existing books, work
in progress, etc. He'd be delighted to have you sign up for it.

If it is true that the road to Hell is paved with good intentions, I’m
constructing an 8-lane highway.
So, just what have I been doing since the last update to this site?
Well, I’ve been to Europe once again, for a Venice-to-Athens cruise.
I’ve been posting to Facebook far more often than I probably should and
am still looking for new contacts there (if we’re not friends yet, I’d
be happy to connect with you…just friend me at www.facebook.com/dorien.grey).
I’m still keeping up with my Monday/Thursday blogs on various sites
(the main one being www.doriengreyandme.com),
I still post photos almost daily to www.pinterest.com/doriengrey,
and try to keep up with my email. I do a weekly travel column on the
e-magazine Queertown Abbey (queertownabbey.com),
and have a few interviews coming up. But other than that…..
And what’s happening with Cameron’s
my next Elliott Smith mystery, you ask? Please don’t. I really don’t
have an answer. Writer’s bloc? Perhaps, but I don’t think so. I suspect
it is more a matter of just growing weary of how slowly things move
between the publication of one book and the next. For some very odd and
rather frightening reason, I just have no interest in writing at the
moment and really must get out a whip and chair and force myself to get
back on the ball.
As far as the re-issue of the six “out of print” books from the Dick
Hardesty series (The Hired Man, The
Good Cop, The Bottle Ghosts, The Dirt Peddler, The Role Players, and The Paper Mirror), I am still…as I
have been for what seems like an eternity…waiting for the reissue of The Hired Man (the audiobook of
which is already available).
On the audiobook front, there’s been a major issue with A World Ago: a Navy Man’s Letters Home,
At a projected 18.5 hours, it is a tremendous undertaking, and the
second narrator just withdrew from the project after completing about 6
hours in as many months. So, that one’s in limbo. Narration on The Serpent’s Tongue
with regular series narrator Jeff Frez-Albrecht is progressing slowly.
If you're not aware of which books are available as audiobooks, check
under "Dorien Grey" on www.audible.com,
and listen to a sample of any/all.
Hopefully, the next update to this site will not be as far in the
future as it was in the past.
And remember, I love nothing more than to hear from you.
