    Thanks for running this. Although he is not as funny as his writings, he did give some good pointers in writing personal essays.

    Funny … just yesterday, my mom asked me if I thought Amy was jealous of David’s success.

    I’d have to say it’s a pretty successful family all around.

    Amy’s got her niche, David’s got his…and both got it goin’ on. His books are some of the few that make me laugh out loud – and that’s sayin’ somethin’. Rock on, David!
