Willy is a great guy, a great writer, and a great friend to the Nevada literary scene. A few years back I had the honor of interviewing him for Nevada Magazine, where we talked about his focus on Reno, and what he thought of the literary and music scenes in Reno. The interview was right after he won the Silver Pen Award for the Nevada Writers Hall of Fame. You can read the whole thing here. You buy Willy’s three books here: The Motel Life, Northline, and Lean on Pete.
