I got both of your latest books (Friends of the Fencerow and A Book of Stories) yesterday and have finished reading them. They are excellent. I especially thought “Silo Boy,” in A book of Stories, was well done. Not that I think murder is a good thing but you dealt with a topic that is largely taboo in our society, that of domestic violence to both women and children. I admire you for tackling this topic. Plus, the story itself was excellent in that it had suspense, mixed with social justice. It was my favorite piece, although I liked all of them.
