I received an astonishing gift recently, and I want to share the story with you. When I showed my wife, it made her cry ��� more than once.

I���m a novelist. I���ve written two technothrillers in a series, with the third in progress. I have a background in tech, and I have a membership/patronage programme on my site, where kind readers can support my writing. I write to them every week, with a...
