A Christmas Note

This is the time of the year when families, friends, and loved ones get together to share old memories and make new ones. Smiles are exchanged around decorated trees, symbolic bushes, and tables laden with holiday cheer. There is no greater gift than shared laughter, and I thank all of my readers and supporters, who are stuffing smiles into stockings and wrapped packages through the purchase of my books Conversations With A Motorcycle, and the delayed Motorcycles Speak Louder than Words.

In the last few days, Zadic and Deverelle Publishers LLC received a deluge of orders… and I have received a slew of personal emails that are absolutely humbling. I am astounded at what so many of you have found in my writing. Writing for you is the most satisfying thing I have ever done in my literary career. Yet there are days when I feel I am not up to the challenge. After all, I pour my heart out to all of you, and you laugh in my face. Thank God.

Thank you for including a part of me in your holiday celebrations. You have no idea what this means to me. I wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Great New Year.
