WARM COMFORT OF THE KNOWN
Deep down we are like little children who want to be read the same bedtime story that is comforting because it is familiar. fun. and the end is known ... unlike with most of daily life.SHARED LAUGHTER
Renewing old friendships and remembering good old times.
I re-read old SPENSER FOR HIRE and LONGMIRE mysteries ... not for the mystery but for the friendships and witty banter that makes each page crackle.
I've been emailed by several readers that they listen over and over to the campfire telling of ghost stories
by Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde, Howard Carter, and Abigail Adams in my audio Egyptian fantasy, THE STARS BLEED AT MIDNIGHT.
