That's really good to know! Larry's an amazing writer. You should check out his other books too (I didn't edit those, but I've read them). I'm guessing you have a work in progress (from your website)?

Jamie Deacon Great to meet you too, Deb. I'm really loving Unbroken so far.


Debbie McGowan Hi Jamie,

Thanks for accepting my friend request - I saw you were reading Unbroken (I edited / published it) and looked you up, saw the Liverpool, rock music, shy, dog lover... likewise! Though not a huge footy fan, but a red nonetheless. Good to 'meet' you!

Deb
