Hey Ron, what can I say? The confines of real life are just not big enough to hold some of us, and we occasionally meander into fiction.

Since Kiel did not write the book, you can't fault him. Isleib used his name as a kind of thank-you for his assistance - what is wrong with that? Quite a few writers insert certain names into their books as a kind of in-joke. Ron, maybe you're a teeny bit jealous that it wasn't your name used?

The books are quite enjoyable, by the way...

Oh my goodness ... Mary is taking me seriously? Jeez, I'm way more than a teeny bit jealous. At least Kiel understood my humor. This must be one of those "three stooges" things where guys find it funny and women shake their heads.

I've been a fan of Isleib and her charactes since book one. It is always my goal to toss a little literary tongue in cheek into my blogs on occasion. I imagine that Kiel provided quite a bit of help at the US Open that year, and was recognizing him as such. Besides, to paraphrase the mediocre Groucho Marx, I'd never read a book that would have me as a character.

hey Ron, thanks for the kind words about Cassie!

As for Kiel, it wasn't like he wrote the book for me or anything :), but the South Hadley US Open was my first official outing in the media tent and I was definitely intimidated. Kiel was a peach. Meanwhile, I'll be thinking about how to work you into the next book...

Hey, that's not necessary. This was just good-natured banter and all. Besides, I'm not too certain whether I am a fictional character already. You know, like Luigi Pirandello's Six Characters In Search Of An Author. I have yet to meet Kiel, but anyone who teaches college full-time cannot be all bad.
