Neil, sorry for the delayed response - I am getting used to Goodreads and somehow my settings didn't forward your message. I hope you had a great trip to the Netherlands. Land of my alma mater! :) I've been working on a new novel and it is currently being shopped to publishers, so stay tuned for good news soon (we hope!)

All the best to you.

Neil Mudde Hi John:

Great to meet you along in this matter, super shot of yourself. What have you been working on these days?
Currently I am spending a few weeks in the Netherlands, the place of my birth, visiting hither and yon, I have a few Aunts who are getting pretty old, and thought to get some family info from them. Today is remembrance day, and I had an invitation to a church service in the Nieuwe Kerk (the new King and Maxima were in attendance, after which there was an impressive somber ceremony of the laying of wreath at the Dam Monument, thousands of people in attendance. Tomorrow in contrast they will celebrate liberation day, which should be a hoot.
Take good care!
