  1. Hi!

    I was checking on what Wind Rider was doing out in the world, and found it on your list of favorite books! How wonderful! I live in rural New York and my dog Spike, looks a lot like your Aussie who stole the broccoli! I’d like to grow such nice broccoli–maybe next year. I’m working on a sequel/next generation book to Wind Rider. Sorry I’m so slow!

  2. ^^haven’t read Wind Rider but i’m hoping too soon:)!!!

    and don’t apologize for being ‘slow’!! great things can’t be rushed, only conceived, planed, and writen

  3. Susan, Oh my gosh! I can’t wait for it to come out! Don’t worry about taking your time, it will only make the book even better! I’d love to see Spike.

    Logan, Thanks for leaving me a comment!!!!!!!!! You’ll love Wind Rider, it’s really good!
