Yesterday, heading into Walmart, a friend and his son greeted me.

We conversed about the happenings in our lives.  I mentioned that I was writing a novel.

“What about?”

“A funeral director.”

“I’d read that,” my friend affirmed.

The teenage son then chimed in, with some enthusiasm, that he would also read the novel.

Now, in all my years, I’ve never read a novel with the funeral director as the main character.  Friends indicate the same.

And now a teenager wants to read a novel about a funeral director?

This could be a huge best seller!!
