    Hello Richard. As a past La Conhita resident who has moved to Boise and miss the ocean terribly. I really enjoy reading about that area how you’ve imtegrated that into your novels. I was just wondering when you might write another book? Any in the works? I’ve enjoyed reading what you have published to date and am hopeful that you will find time and inspiration to write another.
