202/365 Books by people I know

Dennis Higgins contacted me through YouTube to ask if he could use a bit of video I’d uploaded for a time-travel book he was writing about Elgin. I think it was his third book. The fact that he lived in Elgin and wrote time-travel books (about Elgin) was fascinating so we communicated a bit and even met once or twice. He used a story I told him (with my permission) in his most recent book.

Mary Bramer, my seventh grade English teacher, wrote This is my Story, this is my Song which was about contracting polio as a teen and the struggle to become a teacher in an able-centric world. Years after I was Miss Bramer’s student, she claimed she remembered me whenever my dad would fix one of her appliances. He said she asked about me every time.
