Or by carrier pigeon.  Ok, not really, but what if I could?  That would be awesome.

I am interested in all that I see.  For as long as I can remember, I have enjoyed books.  It is only recently that I have discovered the joy of writing.  In my youth, I thought of writing as something one did, when they were being punished by their English teacher.  The memories of Mrs. Johnson and diagramming sentences still haunts me to this day.  But alas, I started writing on Jan 2, and it turns out, it is more fun that a barrel of fun things.

Loved "Time and Again". Now I'll start at the beginning with "Detective Agency". Thank you for letting Raymond Chandler live again!

Hope you have called ahead to Milwaukee County to get permission to cross the Hoan bridge from south, (Bay View) to down town on the lake shore. There is a road close to the lake from Kenosha to South Milwaukee and Bay view.

It's a real maze to cross from south to North detouring around the Hoan Harbor Bridge.

Brian, I am Grany Gardner's next door neighbor, Zoey's father. If I could write like you, which I will never be able to do, I would be the master of all forthcoming hunting books. You are magnificent! I am not easily persuaded when it comes to writing. I have read many a short story from "Best American Short Stories" and other full novels, and your writing is as good as I have ever read. You need a "Hairy Poter" about the web and you are GOLD.

@perfent Thanks so much. Time & Again is my favorite of the three out thus far, though my mother is post partial to Perception. The first book is special to me because, well, it's my first novel.

I'm a little under the weather today, but hopefully I can get through the comments from my editor on book 4 soon, so I can get it out, as it sounds like you're cruising.


Thanks for stopping in and saying hello.
