“The High-Five”

Every now and then, I run into someone who is a die-hard fan of my works. Today was such a time —

I saw him at a distance, stood and stared at him – smiling.

He raised his arm, headed toward me.

He raised his hand in a high-five maneuver. I didn’t even realize people still do those; so very cool.

We did the high-five twice!

He began to tell me how much he is enjoying “the one about the tall boy.”

I nod, provide the title — “Ah THE EIGHT-FOOT BOY.”

He raves about it. He likes my writing style and the story and the situations and the characterizations.

Then he tell me “You’re going to break that ceiling, I think. I think you are going to be on the NY TIMES BESTSELLER list one day. I really do.”

I laugh and tell him my plan is to write at least 25 novels before I kick off and maybe I’ll be remembered for doing that!

He laughs.

“You wait and see,” he says.
