The "Last" Phil Craig Book
Well, I just finished the last Phil Craig book . . . it was wonderful . . . as always !!
I first discovered Phil's books in 1995 . . . I think there were 5 out then . . . and I read through them all right away . . .
Then every spring I looked forward to the new one coming out . . . and that was usually the first book I read every year in June . . . I would always try to make them last . . . tried to read very slowly . . . but each one was so good I just couldn't put it down until it was finished . . . and usually read it in one day !
Last May . . . Phil passed away . . . I had met him a few times at different author events . . . and he was one of the nicest people I have ever met . . . so so kind . . . one of my favorite authors . . .
It makes me sad to think I will never get to speak with him again . . . or to be able to look forward to another one of his books in the Spring . . . June reading will never be the same.
