After 46 years of teaching, the former Toledoan, Larry Rochelle, has finished two thrillers this year: BONAVENTURE and OCCUPY FEARRINGTON. “It’s quite curious to explore your childhood hometown with the eyes of an adult, and place vicious murderers into that formerly tranquil landscape,” says the seventy-two-year-old author and sports buff. “Everyone should try it.”
Growing up in Toledo’s West Side, Rochelle learned tennis and golf in Ottawa and Jermain Parks. His mother, Claire, often took him to Sigmond Sanger Library where he started off with sports fiction, particularly Claire Bee novels. “I loved those action stories, and later I collected quite a few first editions of his books.” Also credited for his literary bent are the Notre Dame nuns who taught at Gesu School. “Each one of them in the early grades read to us in class. What excitement!”
