Hey! Where’s MY Picture?

John Egan, a basketball legend at Providence College, went on to play 11 years in the NBA for the Pistons, Knicks, Cavaliers, Bullets, Rockets and, most memorably, for the Lakers.

One of the characters in my first novel, Rogue Island, has signed photos of PC basketball stars hung in his office, but Egan, who wore number 34 at PC, is not among them.

Egan just shot me a note praising the book–and jokingly wondering why HIS photo wasn’t included. Well, John, it WAS there in the first draft, but my editor said the list of names went on too long. So he cut a few, including John’s. Perhaps I can remedy the omission in a later novel.
