    I just entered “Amy Falls Down” and your voice had me nibbling with interest but at ” … forces, inertia and momentum began to announce themselves, clearing their throats politely,,,” I became permanently hooked, An author’s voice that causes me to laugh out loud in delight and surprise? Priceless.
    I can’t buy a book – get what I read from outreach at the public library – and if I bought all the books I read, I’d have no room to walk never mind lie down. 83+ old and honored to have made your acquaintance. You have other novels for me to feed on . Bless you

    I just started “Amy Falls Down” and your voice had me nibbling but at “…forces, inertia and momentum, began to announce themselves, clearing their throats politely, …” I became permanently hooked. Any author’s voice that causes me to laugh out loud in delight and surprise is my hero. So I’m your devoted reader. I won’t buy a book from you – I get a ‘bag of books” every month from the Outreach program at the local library. That’s who introduced us. Bless you. And thanks for being out there.
