Heading Out to Wonderful by Robert Goolrick

Heading Out to Wonderful is a novel about dark passion in rural 1940's Virginia. A handsome stranger brings two suitcases to town, one full of butcher knives, the other, money.

Goolrick's distinctive writing style is detailed in USA Today's profile of the author. He says his style is the result of his years in New York advertising, writing copy for products from Kohler faucets to Pantene, "It teaches you to cover a lot of information in a short space."

More good news; Goolrick is working on another novel, as well as a prequel to Heading Out to Wonderful. A movie of his previous novel, A Reliable Wife, is in the works from Columbia Pictures.
