Last year at Hutchmoot 2010 an author named Jennifer Trafton showed up at the last minute and volunteered to help. I remember her walking in the room at the pre-moot meeting (redundant?) and introducing herself to the rest of the gang. I also remember seeing my brother Pete perk up and smile.
Now Jennifer’s dog Misty is in my house. Why? Because we’re watching Misty while Pete and Jennifer are on their honeymoon. Father Thomas McKenzie married them; Russ Ramsey delivered the homily; I played a modified version of my song “For the Love of God”, and it all happened at Church of the Redeemer, where in a month, Hutchmoot 2011 will be held. That’s enough synergy to boggle the mind.
So congratulations, Pete and Jennifer–two of the best writers around at the outset of a brand new story together. May God bless and keep you.
