Fred and Susan Chappell, are not only an attractive couple, and a very smart couple, but they are also super nice!  As I get older, the quality of "nice" rises higher and higher in my esteem.

I was thinking of the thousand or so would-be writers that I come into contact each year, and always think that many could benefit greatly from events like Fred Chappell's talk and reading tonight.  You could pay $500 for a writer's workshop, and still not get the quality, talent, and high caliber instruction that I was exposed to tonight.

These last few months we've had several inspiring authors talk about their research and writing and career, and more (see our website www.fountainheadbookstore.com).  I am grateful, and humbled and awed to get to learn from these authors, as well as enjoy the fruits of their labors.
