Hello Quenntis

Thank you, Q. Ah, my next is about a woman who eye-witnesses the drive by shooting of her daughter at her high school... Where unbeknown to her till much later the shooter is.... where she forms a bond with this youth in a remarkable way. It is as emotionally packed as Courage of Fear. I must find the time to work on it... maybe time for me, the pooch and the tent!

Hello Catherine

Thank you so much for your good tidings.
Yes the title... have gotten much flack on that so it is good to hear someone report the opposite.
Courage of Fear actually came about during one of my characters (Culann) telling his story about the man who hung himself in Dooley's Pub back in his hometown in Ireland. "Some say it was the Courage of Fear that took his life...made him mad." Yet when reading the story I try to foreshadow the opposite as well, fear is the greatest motivator of courage and there one always finds strength... one needs the other to be complete.
Thanks again.
