I'm enjoying your book immensely

A couple of weeks ago, Ottawa poet Sylvia Adams and I got together for lunch to discuss writing, and I gave her a copy of my new young adult novel, The Songcatcher and Me (Ottawa, Baico,  Later, Sylvia emailed me and wrote, "I'm enjoying your book immensely, seeing the hand of a pro  here, with just the right amount of tension between characters and the constant motivation to keep turning the pages."

Praise from any reader is wonderful, and it is especially gratifying when it comes from a wordsmith and master of her craft like Sylvia.
