What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the writer that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours. Whom you could call him up on the phone or meet whenever you feel like it. That doesn't happen much, though.
To pay tribute to these friends (in thoughts) and to keep their work alive i am starting a series of blogs to bring a little about the lives of every favorite writer of mine to one place. I am looking forward to find most of you as mutual friends of mine and these writers!
