Good morning Mr. Bear - just wanted to say 'Thank you for your work!'.

I'm staying with my parents for the week, visiting with family that has come from Florida for a 'Cousin Jam'. There's been an abundance of downtime, so I searched my dad's library for something to keep my mind occupied. I came across a copy of 'Tangents', published by Warner Books in 1989. When I showed it to my dad (in response to his 'Whatcha readin'?'), he said, 'Ooh, he's one of my favorites'. And now you're one of my favorites as well. :-)

I have enjoyed each of the nine stories in the book very much. 'Sisters', especially, struck a chord with me, and moved me to tears. I just wanted to take the time to say 'Thanks' for your imagination'. I really like the sound of your 'voice' in your writing (if that makes sense), and when I get home I'll be visiting my library to search out more of your books.

Wishing you continued success, from a new fan,

Much appreciated, Bec! And a tip of the hat to your father as well. Such excellent taste in all things!
