Adios to Richard From Texas, Part 2

Here’s my full tribute to my friend Richard Vogt (a.k.a. Richard From Texas) that appeared at DogCanyon.org.

Adios to Richard From Texas

My friend Richard Vogt, better to know to the world — and fans of Eat, Pray, Love — as Richard From Texas, passed away last week. It’s odd to think that he’s not here, but I know he’s probably loving this next big adventure. As if Oprah wasn’t enough! Here he is with EPL author Elizabeth Gilbert on Oprah in 2006.

I’ll write more on Richard later. Meanwhile, adios, my friend.

Howling About All Things Texas at DogCanyon

The Armchair CoyoteMy pal Glenn Smith has just launched DogCanyon, a new web site about Texas culture, politics, mystique, et cetera et cetera. As the literary editor, I get to blogging about books, authors, writing, bookstores — basically, “Lone Star Lit 101” (my first post!). I’m hoping to post one longer piece a week, with some shorter tidbits in between.

Dr. Greg Jackson is also going to be writing about health care there too — we’re still trying to find a home for that book of his. His first piece is “How to Fix the Costs of Health Care? Let’s Do the Math.”

DogCanyon is also going to be an online media partner with the Writers’ League of Texas, so eventually other Leaguers will also be posting there.

Meet Dr. Greg Jackson

One of my favorite clients is Dr. Greg Jackson, a San Antonion family-practice physician who’s writing a book on how patients can be more active in preventive health care (disclaimer:  I’m serving as his ghost writer!). We just started “Live Better Longer,” a new blog where we’ll be posting short pieces from the book and useful tips we all can use when considering our health options. First up are pieces on saving money on certain procedures, Dr. Greg’s Check-up Checklist, and his take on how doctors should think. Check it out!
