I hope you enjoy these stories as much as I enjoyed writing them. The characters are so real to me that they became friends. At times they would actually tell me what they wanted to say or where they wanted to go. Other characters would just materialize in the pages without forethought and march along in the story making it complete. That is the fun part of writing for me.
