    Every week I enjoy reading your insights of the episodes since they are right on. Here your your story about Diana is so smooth and well written, I can’t wait to read a novel or short story that you have done. I know it will be fabulous. Please let us know if and when you create your own, or if you already have, and I will be the first one in line to buy it, I can’t wait.
