Probably too much stuff.
Bill has had some three dozen books published. He's not exactly sure how many. Yes, he could go back and count them but -- and here's a fun fact -- he doesn't want to. And besides, for some books he was a co-author. Do two co-authored books equal the same as one one-authored book? And what about anthologies? He didn't write all the poems in them but each has included more than a couple of his. (For example, one that begins "Little Molly Peters stuck her finger up her nose."Eat your heart out, Dante.)
So, how about a Q. & A.?
A. Assuming that was a Q., sure.
Q. Did Bill always want to be a writer?
A. No way! He didn't like reading books when he was a kid. He didn't dislike it, it was just far down on his list of fun things to do. (There's a bio here.)
Q. Did Bill write the poem, Mrs. Stein, the one about a substitute teacher?
A. He did. It's been a
big hit on the grade-schoool speech-tournament
Q. If I have a question about writing, can I ask Bill?
A. Sure, that's fine. His e-mail address is BillDodds -- and then throw in that @ sign that's all the rage now -- BillDodds.com. (Kind of an egotistical address if you ask me.)
Q. Who are you?
A. Who is anyone . . . really?
Q. I think Bill Dodds wrote all the copy for this website.
A. No, I . . . he didn't. And that wasn't a question.
Q. Does Bill blog?
A. In theory.
A. Kind of.
Q. Does Bill only write books and poems?
