Fantastic Review from Fantastic Reviews

Fantastic Reviews has done a review of my story “Maddy Dune’s First and Only Spelling Bee”.  It’s worth a look just to see M. O. Muriel’s brilliant illustration for the story in full color.

Here’s my favorite part:

“I enjoyed this piece from start to finish, and I read it to a group in my office who loved it as well.”

  1. Hi Patrick,

    I just wanted to let you know I loved “Maddy Dune.” It was a very close second favorite for me in volume 27 (Patty Jansen’s “Peaceful State of War” was my favorite, but I’m a sci fi girl at heart) and it ranks very high among all the stories in the three volumes I’ve read. It’s so well done, and it’s stayed with me.

    Best of luck in your career, and I hope to read more from you soon!

    I LOVE Maddy Dune. I love the world you gave me an all-too-brief glimpse of. I dearly hope you have more stories of her and her remarkable, eclectic family to share with the world. Thanks for the involving, engaging break from reality– I needed it.

    I can’t wait to read whatever comes next from your imagination. Thank you.

      Thank you so much. Kind words such as yours are absolutely the best motivator. I doubt you’ll have to wait long to read more Maddy stories.
