So I landed in NY to an email by none other than the great Dean Koontz, the man who wrote WATCHERS, one of my favorite novels. Even though he had been recovering and then very busy with publishing and his film, he read my book and thought it (and the cover) was fantastic. I could have fainted. Â Exact quote is on the page about STARTERS. I am so grateful, I don’t think my thank you note could ever express how I really feel.
