Trebor Healey is author of the novel Through It Came Bright Colors, a selection of the InsightOut Book Club and the winner of both the Violet Quill Award and the Publishing Triangle’s Ferro-Grumley Award for Fiction. His other books include the novel Faun, the short story collection A Perfect Scar, and a volume of poetry, Sweet Son of Pan.
A Horse Named Sorrow, and Faun, are his two latest releases.
A Horse Named Sorrow is simply, inexorably beautiful. It is sexy, cinematic, the prose itself an absolute joy to read, and often funny as holy hell. It is, at the same time, one of the saddest works I have ever read: piercing, poignant, and memorable.”—Maureen Seaton, author of Sex Talks to Girls: A Memoir
"This magical tale about a boy unexpectedly turning into a faun is funny, poignant and erotic. Faun offers a wise meditation on our relationship to the earth as well as each other—and to our sexuality, which is the 'greenest' part of us all." —Mark Thompson.
On this week’s podcast, Azi Paybarah from CapitalNewYork.com was unable to join the show because of breaking news. Paybarah, who has covered politics for The New York Observer, WNYC-AM, The New York Sun and the New York Press, will be on a future show to give another journalist’s point of view on the peninsula’s issues – the ferry, Sandy, being ignored — and how our elected officials are viewed, city and statewide.
Instead, host Mark Healey gave his overview of this week's issue and Thursday's ferry and shelter news...

This week, New York State Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder is "Riding The Wave" to discuss the “Community Impact Study of Proposed Uses of the Rockaway Beach Branch Right of Way.” Wow, that was a mouthful. Ok, so basically, he's coming on to let us know whay he thinks why reactivating the Rockaway Beach Rail makes more sense than the QueensWay. Agree? Disagree? Call the show at and let us know during the show at (347) 850-1643
This week, former NYC Councilman and U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner will join the show to discuss the latest issues facing Rockaway. Weiner, who now concentrates on being a dad and pursuing media and consulting opportunities is still very much talked about on the peninsula, and many wish he, not Bill de Blasio, were the mayor of NYC.
On this week's Riding The Wave, Jack Freidman, Executive Director of The Queens Chamber of Commerce, will join us to discuss the upcoming Fall Festival on Saturday, Oct. 21. The newly formed Rockaway Beach Merchant Association will be throwing the party, which will run from noon to 5 p.m. at Beach 94th Street and Rockaway Beach Boulevard.
We'll also discuss the QCC's support of the Queens Way project, which by it's very nature, directly opposes the efforts for the complete restoration of the Rockaway Beach Rail Line.
Whither Massachusetts? We'll look at who'll be the new governor and what that means. Can the nwe governor create and drive aq platform and vision. Instead, will the stolid legislature creep along as it is wont?
This election was not about the big issues and pathfinding in the end. The visionaries and big-change sorts were cast aside by both parties and in the run from the indy candidates. Instead, the top spot came down to two predictible and status-quo types.
Will think about what needs to be done and if the new folk are up to the task.
On the show, we will hear from Jeff Gordon and Ryan Newman about the upcoming race in TX.
We will also talk to Kodie Conner, 13 year old racer, and Brandon "Fireball" Healey, about their latest in racing!
Don't forget our nascar roundtable - all about the CHASE and all nascar talk with the latest news and updates!
