Contact L. Wade Powers

Many authors and others (family, friends, and just about everyone on the planet Earth) have multiple social media contacts. Although I have a Facebook account for essential contacts and information, such as my writing associations, I do not wish to waste precious writing time to entertain a vacuum. However, I do enjoy hearing from readers and others who wish to ask questions, offer comments, and otherwise engage in dialog about the fiction and ideas expressed on this website. I'll try to answer each question or comment, sometimes privately, sometimes by posting on this site. Please be patient. I like fine wine, good food, great movies, hiking, travelling, and, of course reading and writing. This all takes time from emailing, but here it is:

The email name is derived from the name of the fiddler crab species I studied for my doctoral dissertation. If you've read The Party House, then you know the story.

There you have it, a visit to the Planet Powers and a peek at some of the thoughts behind the books and stories I have created. I have an author page on Goodreads, under L. Wade Powers, where you can also ask questions or make comments. I would like to acknowledge the following individuals who have served as readers, critics, consultants, and inspirations: Norman King Brady Jr., Chris Castor, William "Bill" Cook, Leo Dubray, Dan Hawkes, Bill Johnson, Eva and John Lund, Gordon Ross, and Rick Steber. My wife, Alla Vichurina Powers, is my principal go-to and constant inspiration for feedback and encouragement.


Ready to blast off? Start the countdown and drop by planet Powers again. I hope to see you at a literary festival, writing conference, or book signing. Up and away!
