Let's bring it in for a sharing moment

Dear Ang,

Thanks for the meeting tonight.

We discussed lots, with everything from Book #2, Book #3, rebuilding our calendar, discussing roles and goals, among other things.

The last bit was interesting when we talked again about our "Why?"

We keep circling around this question—but it seems our answer hasn't changed much since before.

However, I always feel I must apologize when I say I just want to write and entertain people and engage with readers. I always feel I should be writing something more meaningful.

But then I have that idea of our readers being a lot like my wife and kids, knowing they spend their days working and studying and just want to come home and relax. And I think there has to be a lot more wives and kids and husbands out there like them looking for a book like ours that's fun and entertaining and with a few thrills that they might enjoy.

Besides, I like Charlie and Tony and that in a world of bad and scary things, they are out there trying to undo some of it[1]—even if they cause a little trouble on the way. Having them around, even just in a couple of books of fiction, definitely makes me smile.


  1. This thought was influenced by Helen Keller who once stated, "The world is full of trouble, but as long as we have people undoing trouble, we have a pretty good world." ↩︎
