    I just finished your book and wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it. Not just because it was set here in Louisville. Like you, I live just outside (in Goshen) so I enjoyed being able to identify landmarks in the book. More than that, I really enjoyed a very different plot twist with your book. I especially enjoyed the fact that you didn’t feel the need to end the book with a “happy ending”. This was so much better.
    It was a well thought out plot, a fast paced story, and believable charactars. I can’t wait for the next book.

    1. Peggy, First my thanks for taking the time to read my novel. And secondly, let me thank you for taking the time to make a comment. The Hand of God was a very fun book to write. I am just now finishing the sequel and will start on book three sometime before Thanksgiving roles around. Thanks again!

    I actually was a student from henry county who got the opportunity to get one of my short stories published. I would like to say , I’m very thankful for that opportunity and I look back on it all the time. I haven’t gotten the chance to read any of your books , but I’m very interested on getting my hands on one. I would like to ask though , have you ever gotten the chance to read mine. It was called 2760 if I’m not mistaken , but I would like to hear what you thought about it.
