      Hi Mandy, How have you been? I never see you write coments on Suspensemagazine. Why not? I think you are a talented writer and we need to create platforms if we ever want to break through. At least that's what I think, just thinking about you. John said that he liked Solon. He said that he would see if anyone wanted to buy it. But he never offered me a contract. I think this is unorthodox but it is still better than not having anyone at all. Working on any new novels? I know you are busy with the baby. Well just trying to keep in touch. Very cute little baby. I think you told me her name, but i forgot, sorry. Ray
