From Maynard, 08 September 2008:
I’ve just finished “Sweeney’s Run” and I wanted to tell you how much it impressed me. The best part of your book was the writing. Your use of words and phrases was the best I’ve encountered in years, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I’m just sad that I’m finished with it; it’s like a good movie that you just don’t want to end.
