Requesting Information About Ron Faust

I’m planning to start a permanent page—as part of this blog—dedicated to the work of Ron Faust. Mr. Faust wrote 15 novels between 1974 and 2013; his final novel, Jackstraw, was published posthumously. He died in 2011, and information is difficult to find.

I’m looking for information about Mr. Faust and his work: firsthand stories, interviews, articles, etc. The information will be used to develop a better understanding of both the man and his work. If you have memories, knowledge of his biography, bibliography, or know of any magazine and newspaper articles featuring Mr. Faust I would love to hear them. Please send an email to zulu1611@yahoo.com.

I have written what I know about Ron Faust in the post “Ron Faust: An Unforgettable Writer,” and I have reviewed three of his novels: Nowhere to Run, Split Image, and The Long Count.

Ben, I read up a lot on authors and books and I will let you know if I come across anything on Ron Faust.

Thanks Prashant. I appreciate your help.

Ben, I have an inscribed 1st of WHEN SHE WAS BAD; Ron included a nice note as well. It doesn't include anything of particular interest, I suppose, other than a reference to a campground he was staying at at the time. Minutea like that is probably not what you're looking for.

Best of success w/ your page; Faust is a midlist favorite of mine as well, so I'll watch it with great interest.

Ron. Sorry for the slow response. I've been offline for a few days. Your signed copy of WHEN SHE WAS BAD sounds awesome. Where was the campground? I'm hoping to cobble together a simple biography, which might be an impossible task and any information will be helpful.

Ben, if you want to leave me your email address here (using "at" and "dot" so it won't be harvested), I can send you images of both the sig page and the letter to read and use however you see fit.
