Wow! Congratulations on all the rewards. You sure have a way with creating fabulous, amazingly interesting characters. In fact, I've used your books to study characterization, and have thoroughly enjoyed them all.

I wish I lived close enough to come to your class, but Texas is a long way from Colorado. *smiling*

Have a great day! And again... congratulations!
