RE: Deric Longden
If you could kindly pass this along to Mr. Longden, I would appreciate it. Many thanks.
Dear Mr. Longden,
Thank you so much for the wonderful stories you've written. I discovered your cat books when I was in my early 20s, and I have savored every one as I read them. Over the years, I have had the pleasure of introducing these books to other cat lovers in my life. My 9 year old step-daughter, Isabelle, insists on having a chapter read to her every night at bedtime. It's such a delight to hear her giggling over Thermal's antics, and it has really spurred her imagination in relation to our own feline companions. She often tells stories about Thief and Moonlight's adventures, which have evolved from the oral tradition into the written tradition by way of her classwork in school.
I read the article in the Examiner last month and was saddened to hear of your health problems. Please know that prayers, warm thoughts, and gratitude are coming your way from our neck of the woods.
With warm regards,
Barto, Pennsylvania, USA
