"I couldn't put it down! When's your next book coming out?" This is the common theme I've heard from my readers since MISSING was published. Even Bonnie Henington, a reader I'm not sure I've met, left this comment when she requested a free story: "Easily one of the best mysteries I have read. I know we will see it on the Best Seller list. Will be waiting for your next book."
Honestly, I couldn't be more pleased. True, holding the book, witnessing the tangible evidence that I've finally had my book published, was an experience I won't ever forget. But hearing good things from my readers is more than the icing on the cake, it's a form of victory, of goal accomplished, of knowing I've successfully connected with others through my art. When all is said and done, writing, while fraught with work and disappointment, is one of the greatest joys in my life. Readers, you are the best!
