About Me

It's been a long time since I lived in Louisiana, but that's where I'm from and that's where I'm going. So many cool places between then and now, but it's time for home. I'll be there late August '13.

Thank you for your comments on Homecoming 1944.

Mathew Paust – Jan 22, 2013

Many thanks, Foster, for the kind words for "Author Meets Unflattering Reviewer in Bar". I'm a tad late here as I let Fictionaut and other daily endeavors slide the past couple of weeks while getting my novel, Sacrifice, ready for a contest and then formatting it for a paperback edition on Amazon. All that's done now, so I have a little catching up to do.

Gessy Alvarez – Dec 12, 2012

Thanks, Foster. "Routine of the Abyss" is my attempt at minimalism. Sometimes the challenge is, how do you say it without saying it.

Thank you for feeling the way you did about When Borders was Alive and Well. The old man was real. I saw him coming up an escalator in a giant mall in Maryland. The magnifying glass was poking out of his tweed pocket.

Jack Swenson – Sep 15, 2011

Foster, I don't think I'd have the guts to be the kind of teacher I portray in "The List," though when I was teaching, I had some squabbles with the administration, and I came out okay.

Thanks for your endorsement of the story!

Bill Yarrow – Sep 01, 2011

Thanks for faving the visa poem. The title is admittedly bizarre. Guess I had visas on my mind!

Thanks for your kind comment on and fave of "Black Ice." Appreciate you as a reader, Fos!

Beate Sigriddaughter – Jul 06, 2011

I loved your comment on "The Devil's Advocate." Far superior in my book of enlightened men than the more typical idea of getting a daughter when you really wanted a son, but ending up loving her anyway. (Not that there is anything wrong with loving "anyway.")

Bill Yarrow – Jun 29, 2011

Thanks, Foster. Great comment on "Paradise Island." Yes, some (or much) ambiguity in the poem.

"these thoughts swim in your head"--well, that's what the male narrator thinks anyway. The truth? Well...

I kind of think the poem's more about him than it is about her.

Bill Yarrow – May 26, 2011

Thanks for faving "Mad Love," Foster. It's one of those poems born from extreme paring down. That is to say, I wrote a long poem that didn't work at all, shaved off 7/8 of it, and what was left popped to life!

And I'm still thinking about A Life Twice Told. That one really sticks with me, Foster. I just love it. Have you sent it off somewhere? You should get it OUT there!!

Michelle Elvy – Aug 28, 2010

And I'm still thinking about A Life Twice Told. That one really sticks with me, Foster. I just love it. Have you sent it off somewhere? You should get it OUT there!!

Michelle Elvy – Aug 28, 2010

Foster -- thanks so much for your comment and fave on Time to Rest. And I'm so glad I came to Burger and Fries -- is it part of a larger work? I think it could be... there is a lot there, but you know that more than anyone else, I reckon.

Jules Archer – Aug 24, 2010

Hi Foster! Many thanks for reading & commenting on "Halo"! Happy you enjoyed it.

Bill Yarrow – Aug 24, 2010

Hey, Foster. Thanks for the comment on and fav of "Parables for Rodin." Glad you enjoyed the poem.

Foster, so glad your going to write something for Oil group. It can be from any pov, and satire/dark humor is always welcome

Michelle Elvy – Aug 23, 2010

Thanks so much, Foster, for your read on Between. Glad it struck a chord!

Susan Tepper – Aug 23, 2010

Cheers!

Michelle Elvy – Aug 02, 2010

Thanks for the comment on A Night of Not Knowing. Looking forward to coming back here soon, off to work now. Did you get a job yet? I know what it's like not working for a long long time... and how hard it is to transition back to it... Good to meet you here. Will be back to read very soon.

Jack Swenson – Jul 11, 2010

Thanks for the comment on "Extracurricular," Foster. I'm happy you liked it.

Susan Tepper – Jul 11, 2010

Foster, our Esp must've crossed because you passed through my mind yesterday. Thank you so much for Summer in the City! Hope you are doing well

Sara – Jul 11, 2010

Foster, Thanks so much for your note. (And for reading.) Hope you're doing well.

Jack Swenson – May 23, 2010

Thanks for your comment on my Amsterdam story. Yes, so many stories, so little time!

Kait Mauro – May 23, 2010

I enjoyed reading the little bio you sent me with 'A Life Twice Told' and your 'About' section on here. You seem like a very interesting person who has lived in a lot of interesting places, I hope to do the same someday.

Myra King – May 19, 2010

Thanks Foster :-)

Jack Swenson – May 18, 2010

Foster, I appreciate your comments about "Black Orchids" and my writing. Thank you very, very much.

Meg Pokrass – May 18, 2010

Foster - thanks for the kind words about my story "Proposal". I agree, it was out of nowhere. It was from a prompt (as usual). Much appreciated!

Stephanie Bobo – Apr 25, 2010

Thank you, Foster, for reading "Classmates," the fav, and your kind words. So glad to hear you thought the mood ran through all three: I felt it, but couldn't see it for myself on the page. Thanks!

Jane Hammons – Apr 23, 2010

Hey thanks for your comment on Pleiku Jacket.

Bonnie ZoBell – Apr 21, 2010

Thanks for your thoughtful comments on "Real Estate," Foster! Much appreciated.

Jack Swenson – Apr 18, 2010

You're on the money with the Hemingway parallel in "Snowed In." My early idol. This story was written a few years back. I've changed, I'm not sure whether for the better or worse.

Meg Pokrass – Apr 17, 2010

I'm glad you liked my strange white goat piece!

Sara – Apr 17, 2010

Foster, Thanks for your kind note on Common Trade. I really appreciate it.

Doug Bond – Apr 17, 2010

thank you Foster for the words on Sweet & Sour, much appreciated

Susan Tepper – Apr 13, 2010

Foster, thanks for your read and great words on my St. Barts story.

James Lloyd Davis – Apr 10, 2010

People still read Turgenev? Wow.

Susan Tepper – Apr 09, 2010

Foster, the story you wrote is highly original. Let's face it-- once the first potter made the first pot, there were no more "so-called" original pots. But realistically, every time one puts pen to paper, another totally new and original world is created. The only similarity between your story and Cheever's was the meeting of father and son. Your story brought his to my mind. Yours is yours, his is his. They are both great stories. But yours is uniquely yours.
Susan

Ajay Nair – Apr 06, 2010

You are most welcome Foster. Love your stuff.
(p.s. For some time now, I have been mis-reading your name as Foster and thinking it's a pretty cool name. a late onset of selective dyslexia).

Meg Pokrass – Apr 06, 2010

Foster, thank you so much for your kind comment about "Villa Monterey" - means a lot.

Matthew A. Hamilton – Apr 02, 2010

Foster, thank for reading Liquid Compass. Glad you enjoyed it.

Susan Tepper – Apr 02, 2010

Foster, you are flying with Eight States Away-- Congrats, it's a hell of a good story

Myra King – Apr 01, 2010

Thanks Foster, for your kind comments.

Jason Henry McCormick – Apr 01, 2010

Thanks for the comments, Foster. "Eight States Away" is another awesome, awesome story, man.

M.H. – Mar 31, 2010

You are more than welcome, Foster :) I can't wait to read more of your work!

See ya – Mar 30, 2010

Hey, Foster. Very cool, your comments on Little Walter, and, yes, I think we can all see ourselves in there somewhere. I had hoped so, anyway. Hurt is a lonely place and sometimes company can help. The character in this story is still hurting and may still have more to tell. I'm not sure. But thanks so much for taking time to give my work such a careful read.

Susan Tepper – Mar 29, 2010

Your latest-- "Eight States Away" could be a Twilight Zone episode, if there was still a twilight zone (is there one out there??) Story has a film noir feel, yet the writing feels fresh

Jack Swenson – Mar 26, 2010

Foster, Thanks so much for your comments on "Estranged." I try to write stories that have that good kind of ambiguity, something else going on underneath the surface. I can't take credit for it; it just happens. Sometimes I get lucky!

Sara – Mar 25, 2010

Foster, thanks for reading Girl -- and for your kind note. I'm so happy it worked for you.

Susan Tepper – Mar 18, 2010

ps-- love Turgenev, too, esp Fathers & Sons

Susan Tepper – Mar 18, 2010

Foster your words on my poem Wash made my morning! Thanks so much. I used to live in Philly

Jack Swenson – Mar 16, 2010

Again, thanks for the kind words, Foster. Glad you liked "The Birds."

Doug Bond – Mar 11, 2010

Foster...thanks for your post, great to meet you here and read your work...and ditto for sure on inspiration slot #2 above: Man reminisces on a distant memory. The older we get the more of 'em just keep crowding about wanting some voice

Sara – Mar 10, 2010

That voice just got to me -- it's real and true and demonstrates such command; I look forward to reading more of your work.

I'm a Philly girl, or former, but return now and again for the pretzels and a whole lotta accent.

David Erlewine – Mar 10, 2010

Hey Foster, thanks for your wall post. My pleasure on the small assistance. It's a great story, bud.

Jack Swenson – Mar 10, 2010

Thanks for the great review of "Quitting." Kind words. I really appreciate it.

Susan Tepper – Mar 09, 2010

Foster, Cactus sticks. You made a landscape that is like a film, and stays in the mind

Meg Pokrass – Mar 09, 2010

well, it just hits close to home, and not so much situationally, just in a broader sense of how life moments become like phantoms that one time were warm and vibrant. Oh, i think it is okay to cry from time to time reading stories - what it really means, Foster, is that your writing is powerfully effective (and that i am a tad sensitive to the subject)

sara t. – Mar 05, 2010

Hey Foster I like your writing and thanx for commenting on mine.

Susan Tepper – Mar 05, 2010

Foster, A Life Twice Told is one of those stories that stays with me. I think you went into a part of the unconscious mind where fear of death, that "what if" gets carried. And you did it masterfully for this story

Luca Dipierro – Mar 05, 2010

Vittorini, grande.

Finnegan Flawnt – Mar 02, 2010

thanks for your kind comment, foster. italy...if the memories still hang around, join the second tongue group for (virtual and actual) expatriates. enjoyed your story 'a very quiet evening' immensely. respect for knowing your themes - that bodes well.

Gary Percesepe – Mar 01, 2010

yo--

time in italia, always a good thing--

ciao,

gary

Joshua Moses – Feb 26, 2010

right on man.

M.H. – Feb 22, 2010

It's my pleasure, Foster - A Very Quiet Evening is a great story :)!

Ajay Nair – Feb 19, 2010

Most welcome, Foster.

Neil Serven – Feb 18, 2010

And thank you in kind, Foster, for the comments on "The Get-Up." I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Christian Bell – Feb 18, 2010

Thanks, Foster, for reading and commenting on my story “Bobby Fischer in Budapest”!

Jack Swenson – Feb 03, 2010
