  • As a James Lee Burke fan, I am disgusted with the above content, purporting to describe the Dave Robicheaux series of novels. It is so poorly written that, even with my editing skills, I’m not sure I could make sense of it. I would certainly cut it in half! I have no idea who wrote this so-called biography, but if they are getting paid for their efforts the world is truly upside down!

    • Hi – Our authors and series biographies are written by people within our community who are either homeless or struggling financially or have various other issues. We hire them to help them out. Unfortunately none of them are professional writers. We do have a few editors who go through the bios prior to posting however for many of our earlier bios one our editors unfortunately weren’t doing their job and just posting as is.

      We’ve tried to clean them up as best as we could but unfortunately been unable to get them all. Thanks for bringing this one to our attention we’ll get it revised ASAP.

      • Dear Graeme, Now I feel like a smacked ass. I had no idea where your content was being generated. I apologize for my harsh words and you may take the thread down if you like.

        • Don’t worry about it 🙂 I really do appreciate you bringing it to my attention as I hate seeing content like the above on here too.

          I’ll get it sorted ASAP and then delete this thread of comments. Thanks again.

            I saw the summary, also, and assumed there was a reason for the errors; perhaps the writer was mentally or physically challenged. I appreciate the effort and above all the passion the author put into it. Please thank him for his synopsis and insight into Dave’s life.
