  2. I liked Banjo Man. It reads well and story develops nicely. You can’t help but like Harry and want him to conquer his demons and push past his pain. Nice job. Very enjoyable!

    • Hi Millard, I don’t know if you received my e-mail, I can change your e-mail address in my address book. Maybe that will do it. My best to you and your family
