At thanksgiving I had brought a copy of my book Karmic Krackers and gave the copy to my aunt and cousins.
This Christmas my cousin gave me a few books from Dashiell Hammett and said my writing reminded him of them.
Now before this my only memory of him was reading the Maltese falcon in high school (not with fondness)
But I thanked him and have just read the books and feel quite flattered that they felt I wrote like that.
I can see a certain similarity but he wrote a bit different then I do or I think so but still happy for the comparison ( not to mention the good books).
as always thanks for reading
