The Halfway Club
October 6, 2020

Thank you Inez for taking care of me for over thirty-five years! You’ll always be my favorite restaurant owner, chef, waitress, bartender and the Halfway Club will always be my favorite restaurant in the world. I hope wherever you are now they are waiting on you hand and foot. For those of you who don’t know, The Halfway Club is one of Reno’s greatest and oldest landmarks. It was Frank Flannigan’s favorite restaurant in THE MOTEL LIFE and of course it’s mine, too.

The Motel Life in Italian!!!!
September 13, 2020

We’re all shaking in our boots here in Oregon with the unprecedented and horrifying wildfires. I think we’d all love to be on a beach somewhere in Italy reading a novel, and for those with darker minds THE MOTEL LIFE. The brave and brilliant publisher, Jimenez, has just re-published Willy’s first book in Italian. Thank you Jimenez for believing in his work.
