I am very sorry to say this, and I wish it wasn't true, but John Deaver has cancer. He is having surgery today. He is a successful, interesting, nice, and smart guy, and it's just such a shock. So if you know him or have read his stuff or have seen him in plays and musicals, then pray for him to make it through this trial.

After I met him in a writing class, he became a part of Metrofiction, which we formed over a year ago. I hadn't heard from him in a while, but when I last saw him in a play in St. Charles, he seemed fine. He's a busy guy and is productive intellectually as well as at work and in his various other activities.

He's also too young to suffer such ill health and leave this earth, so let's hope that he sticks around for many years to come.
