The whale piece is a well written, fine short story. I am much impressed with your whale research. It is accurate and lends great veracity to the story. What’s more, I decided to sample your Milford-Haven serious. Generically the title would not have attracted me. I was curious to know more of your work and the quality of your writing. I have nothing but compliments for you and great respect for the time and discipline required to produce a fine novel (leave alone a series).
