When I have the chance I tend to follow up on the people who choose to “follow” my Alcove. Who they are and what we might have in common intrigues me. There are times when I have no idea why the person found interest in my cyber-room, then there are the times I am delightfully pleased. Such was the case when Mr. Wells stumbled upon my space some months ago. One visit to his blog and I was absolutely hooked.
Our connection led to the publishing of a first novel, a delightful story of second chances and reconsiderations of where life has guided us. As far as I know, the book is sadly out of print. I hope, one day, it is published again. However, Peter is still around, penning short stories and observations that always provide an outlook worth the time. If you spend time on Peter’s blog, Counting Ducks (and I highly recommend you do) you will find a delightful mix of humor, serious observation on the plights of people and humanity in general, and a craftsman’s skill at the development and illumination of character.
