A singing dog, an awful dog, thugs in the U.S. Customs service and a grandamother busted out of jail are just a few quirky characters that Martha Eagan snares and ropes into her literary work.
Her most recent book, “La Ranfla and Other New Mexico Stories,” is described as light-hearted and reflects the nuttiness in life.
“La Ranfla” is also the subject of Eagan’s talk at 7 p.m. Thursday in Mesa Public Library’s upstairs gallery. The discussion is part of the library’s Authors Speak series.
“La Ranfla” is one of several fiction works that Eagan has written. Other novels are “Clearing Customs,” (2004) and “Coyota” (2007).
She also ventured into the nonfiction arena.
Eagan has focused on Latin American artwork in her books, “Milagros: Offerings from the “Americas” (1991) and “Relicarios: Devotional Miniatures from the Americas” (1994).
She explained she started writing fiction six years ago, “from the other side of my head.”
It wasn’t exactly new territory for Eagan. She said she has always written fiction but had not worked to get anything published.
