Gwenda, I suppose I’m too old for young adult books;
but they can’t stop me from reading it! I’m waiting impatiently to get my hands on a copy of your work. This is a long way from the little girl who used to stop by on Halloween for a quarter from my grandmother. I admire you and I’m proud of you.
