    Surely you are not the Richard Hacker that went to Excelsior High School in 1968? Played Spock in the school play? Was in the Civil Air Patrol?

    Found your new book a bit far fetched. REALLY! A Texas governor planning to return Texas to a republic? Just to win the votes and money of the radical right? OH WAIT! We had a governor like that. Nice store Richard! Your Former Westlake pastor cohort!

      Bob, thanks for reading. Glad you enjoyed. I kept coming up with ‘far-fetched’ plots and kept getting outdone by Texas politicians. LOL. I shifted direction to sci-fi fantasy and have an agent currently shopping my first in a series right now. I hope it will find a home soon. Thanks again for reading!

    Hello from Austin where we had a cold front and it’ll only be in the 60s today. All the SXSW-ers are freezin. Miss ya and looking forward to reading more of your adventures soon.
