It was very captivating when you told us about your newspaper career and how you wrote about football. I also liked writing the character interviews from the book, A Sack Full of Feathers.”

It was really nice to listen to you talk about your life and how you became an author and a journalist. When I grow up I want to be a hockey player but if I can’t I was thinking of being an author and you have reinforced that idea.
