Fan Mail Wednesday #118: Lucas from Iowa

Wait, hold on, I think I’ve got one . . .

I replied:


Thanks for writing. I’ve never been to Iowa. It’s exciting to get a letter all the way from there.

Does it really look like this?

I was impressed by your comments about Jigsaw Jones — and thrilled that my books inspired you to observe more when you go places. In that way, writers and detectives (and scientists, for that matter!) are similar. It’s important for us all to stop, see, and listen. It’s how we appreciate this beautiful world, full of such amazing sights and people. The more you see, the more you realize how great it is to be alive.

Thanks for your well-written note, Lucas. Have a great summer!


P.S. Thanks for enclosing the Self-Addressed, Stamped Envelope. Very thoughtful of you.
