Yesterday I received an email from a new fan who had discovered Runaway Bay on her bookshelf (she’s not sure how it got there) and enjoyed it. I answered, of course, and we traded a couple of rounds of email. Then, yesterday afternoon, she sent me this:
I know this looks like a staged photo but what makes it so great is that it absolutely is not. I had your book on the table and she picked it up. I thought it was rather serendipitous that the same day I correspond with you my daughter gives me this unexpected opportunity for a great photo.
Now you have photographic proof that your writing appeals to all ages. I think I will keep her away from the love scenes for as long as I can though. I promise to stop crowding your email, this pic was just too cute to keep to myself.
Okay, I know she should be reading Pat the Bunny, but I can’t help grinning like a fool. Thanks to her mom, Brooke, for giving me permission to post.
