While I have never met you, I do know your father and mother. I worked with your father at Curling Junior High. I believe you have also met my daughter, Adrienne King, who lives in Portugal Cove-St. Phillips.
I read in the Western Star today that you have received the Winterset Award, and I want to join in the chorus of congratulatory voices that I am sure you are going to hear loud and strong.
I bought a copy of your book as soon as it was released and thoroughly enjoyed reading it....as I do your columns for the Telegram. In fact, Adrienne had a signed copy and exchanged hers with mine because she knew how much I would appreciate that.
I am looking forward to your next book.
My very best wishes,
