From beginnings so small;
But I rose as if quicked by a spur

I was bound to obey,
And stepped through the casement to her

Still alone in the gray.

"I am leaving you . . . Farewell!" I said,

As I followed her on
By an alley bare boughs overspread;

"I soon must be gone!"
Even then the scale might have been turned

Against love by a feather,
- But crimson one cheek of hers burned

When we came in together.


A day is drawing to its fall

I had not dreamed to see;
The first of many to enthrall

My spirit, will it be?
Or is this eve the end of all

Such new delight for me?

Michael Maxwell
When Micheal Maxwell isn't travelling the world with his wife, you are most likely to find him somewhere between Central Valley and the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. If you do, and you have a chat with this interesting man, take care - you might just end up in a scene of one of his books! Maxwell loves writing character-driven mysteries about everyday people, books with heart that readers can relate to. In this interview, Maxwell reveals how Diamonds and Cole was inspired by a song, how he created Cole Sage and talks about his writing habits.
