Amelia Jeff,

Just wanted to let you know the Muirwood books are among my favorites, and helped push me over the edge to decide to write myself. I was deeply inspired by the way you weaved themes into your story and characters so successfully. I've a lot of respect for you and your writing, as well as your efforts in self publishing. I can't wait to read your new book!

Amelia
