One of the really neat things about being a writer, that I'd really never considered before, is the part about getting in touch with all of you excellent people out there. Sometimes that's expressed by simply buying my books; I mean, that's such a cool thing to try to get my head around - people actually spending their hard earned money to read my stuff; then there are those wonderful folks who write a review, which is always so very gratifying, and sorely needed. Then, a few months ago, when Kelly Matthews and I agreed on a trade: a signed copy of 'The Adventures of Charlie Smithers' in exchange for an actual blanket from the Maasai Mara, I was pretty much over the moon. Here's a photo I took in mid-September:
Thank you, Kelly. Very much!
