Simply Wonderful!

I rarely if ever post reviews or fan mail. Maybe I’m modest, but I doubt people want to hear how much others like my books. All that said, I do have to share an email I received last night because it’s such a wonderful testimonial to we’re never too old! I believe it, because I’m 72 and every time I publish a new book within days it will be in the top 400 Kindle sold books or even lower! Here’s the email I received. Remember, if the two of can do it at our ages, so can you!!!

“I am an almost 77-year-old forensic psychologist who is still working. I live on 60 acres in the country alone with 7 cats (the last 4 are strays; I am a soft touch). My late husband was also a forensic psychologist and we were skeptics in the days of the crazy ritual abuse and recovered memory hysteria. When I retire I want to write my memoirs of these cases.
I don’t watch television and unwind and relax by reading my kindle.
I am writing to tell you how much I enjoy your books. The characters are interesting, the mysteries well done, and you have romance without the long and graphic sex scenes I often find. I am no prude–my specialty is sexual abuse allegations. But I find the detailed sex scenes boring.
Congratulations on finding such a fun and worthwhile outlet for your considerable talent.”
