      1. I’m sure I will!
        It finally hit me today by the way, it’s been bothering me for months. Your stories and style reminded me of other books I adored but I couldn’t put my finger on it.. eccentric family, living abroad, animal tales and just the hilarious style you have and today BOOM! There it was, your stories are nothing alike but somehow reminiscent of each other – I bet you’d have been great friends. Gerald Durrell. I loved his books about his family and other animals!
