 "Hi Gary - Your book is both interesting and is written superbly.  Your descriptions of a small lake are fabulous.  You have a talent not many writers have.  I see you moving from your memories to a major novel.  Congrats on a great read, Gary.

Alan Longworth  Novelist & Poet


 "Gary - I have just finished your book and enjoyed all the stories.  It's a Relative Thing really caught me by surprise.  I couldn't figure out how you were going to end this one.  The Way We Were spoke of a lot of things we now have in our society that make me wonder.  It amazes me how you were able to put that into a readable setting.  Where do you get your ideas from?  The Bluebirds was very moving.  You have a great talent of ways to put a story together.  I'll be ready for a copy of the next book."

 "Hi Gary - Your book arrived yesterday, I eagerly opened the mailer and started reading.  Stopped for dinner, then continued till bed time.  This morning couldn't wait to get back to it.  Finished a few hours ago.  Just the right amount of facts, humor, and embellishments to keep your interest at the right level.  It was really interesting and fast moving.  Highly recommended to everyone."  -  Dwight, California


Enjoying the read.......I cheated of Chateauroux (The Years in Europe) first......very well done!

Phil, Austin Texas.


 "I finished your book and I enjoyed it immensely.  I didn't know you were such a man of the world with an inquisitive mind and the creative instinct towards nature.  I followed you to the Dew Line and cruised with you in France and Europe in your Jag (Wow!).  I loved your description of "Whiteout," which I have never experienced but understand the concept - the need for shadows and shades for deffinition.  And it was neat how you broke into your own story with a tale of someone else's.  Thank you for letting me into your life's journey, it has been an amazing trip."

- Lily Hoy Price - Author, who tells her interesting, personal story in her book: "I Am Full Moon."


"Hi Gary - I loved the book!  What an interesting life you have had.  The story on Chateauroux surely brought back memories.  Cleo's story was great and I love how you did it from her point of view.  Great, Great, Job, Gary!"

Your book arrived yesterday and I read the first five stories.  They were so captivating that I decided to wait until I had a block of time where I could read all the rest without interruption.  Gary, you make the words flow together into such readable prose.
