    Met you at the Toyota dealership in Fredericksburg where I bought your book, “The Year Without Christmas”. I started reading it that day and couldn’t put it down. Sorry it has taken me so long to comment on it. Working as an RN in the emergency for 27 years and also have dated cops in the past, I have had a lot of exposure to that field of work. Everyone should have to read your book so they realize that police officers are people also with hearts. I could empathize with the officer in the book and why he just left to escape what happened. I loved your book. It was easy to read and flowed really well.

      I remember you well, Lorri. Thank you for taking the time to get back to me about the book. I’m pleased you enjoyed my story. FYI, I’m working on a new novel, Healer, to be published this year. It’s about a 16-year-old boy who receives the gift of healing and what happens to him afterward.

  2. John,
    A wonderfully professional, polished website. I’m taking a few ideas for my own!

    Target was a good book. Reminded me of my days on the street in the 8th District.
    Keep up the good work John.

    Very nice web site, John. You have many talents among them being an artist with words, with photography and with how to always be improving. You are an inspiration to all that know you.
