Here’s one I got from a second-grader — Lauren in Kentucky — via the miracle of the interwebs!
Dear Mr. James Preller:
How are you today? This year I’ve been reading
your Jigsaw Jones Mystery books and I think
you have been doing a great job on them because
I like Mysteries!
Your fan, Lauren
I’m fine today, how are you?
Actually, I’m terrific. Things are really good these days, my three kids are healthy and thriving, my wife is great, I’m writing well, exercising, and I’m happy.
Have you ever seen Carlton’s happy dance? This is me, inside . . .
I’m glad you’ve been reading my books, and relieved (whew!) to hear that you think I’ve been doing a great job. It means a lot to me.
