A Delightful Surprise

I received an unexpected treat the other day when a friend who is an instructor at Wichita State University called to say she was telling her students about an audio-to-text program I had recommended to her that they could use while working on their memoirs.

She mentioned that I had recommended it to her, and one of the students piped up and spoke glowingly about my novel, Fallen Trees. “She kept talking about what a great book it is,” my friend said. “She’s right, you know.”

I was touched by the student’s kind words. My hope, when someone buys a book of mine, is that they are glad they did once they have finished it. They have invested money and time – both precious commodities – and I want them to be pleased with their decision. To learn of her praise delighted me because it told me my hope had been realized.
