Origin of Oars in the Water

I have always intended to write a book. I’ve written plenty of articles for publication including a dissertation, but I never wrote a book for fun. I couldn’t decide between a book on gardening or a book of poetry—or a combination. Then one morning I woke up with the words “oars in the water” ringing in my mind. I went to the computer and searched for websites by that name. I did a domain search, and finding it available, I purchased oarsinthewater.com to begin a website.

I had no idea where I was going with it, but an unsolved memory kept nagging in my mind, and I started writing. The rest of the story is in the book, Oars in the Water: Music, Mayhem and Murder. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
