I have just finished the 4th or 5th e-book rendition of your novels and thoroughly enjoyed them all. You really developed into an outstanding writer as you blew through your writing career. Great job and you deserve much more acclaim than I am aware you have received. Your books are page turners, fun, have a humorous edge, historically acceptable (you have to have a little literary license), are multi-faceted. Great job! I am working your books in with the complete works of Charles Dickens, some 51 volumes. Yours are much more interesting and fun to read. Dickens is great in literary terms but his stories are a bit benign for the most part. How does it feel to be compared to a great? By the way I am serious.
