Holy Great Writers, Batman!

This just in!  Terry Pratchett – author of the best selling “Discworld” series, and an author I rank right up there with Stephen King, J.R.R. Tolkien and Bruce Campbell – announced that he’s got an rare form of  early-onset Alzheimers.  His statement is available here.

I came up with my pen name – William de Worde – from his book, The Truth.  As I said in the About me page, it’s one of the best books I’ve ever read (and a character I was hoping to see again in the Discworld series.  I’ll always associate Terry Pratchett and his Discworld with my fiancee, since she was the one who introduced me to this world.

Wow, I’m really bummed and hope there is something that can be done to pull him through this.  There are many more Discworld books he needs to write, dang it!

Benson Hendrix, APR has been called everything from a “social media zen warrior” to the ” ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper of Public Relations,” and from a “behind the scenes powerbroker,” to “the loudmouth PR love child of Henry Rollins and Anthony Bourdain,” but doesn’t really believe any of it (except maybe the “Rowdy” Roddy Piper part). Hendrix is the Social Media Manager for the University of New Mexico and loves helping organizations and people tell the stories that are important to them. He is also an adjunct social media instructor at the University of New Mexico, and the Social Media Strategist for TEDxABQ. In the few minutes a week he calls "spare time," he relaxes with his wife and chases his dream to be a better photographer.
