      Having just finished reading “More Deaths Than One” and then allowing myself to look up who you are, not even knowing your gender, I am most impressed by what you write and all you do. So to me, I am not puzzled at all about how well you can get your point across and your words down. Bravo.

    A group of 15-year-old girlfriends discussed where to meet for dinner. Finally, they agreed to meet at the Dairy Queen next to the Ocean View restaurant because they had only $6.00 among them and Jimmy Johnson, the cute boy in Social Studies, lived on that street.

    10 years later, the group of 25-year-old girlfriends discussed where to meet for dinner. Finally, they agreed to meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the beer was cheap, the restaurant offered free snacks, the band was good, there was no cover and there were lots of cute guys.
