MR. SMITH, what’s up brother? My name is TIMOTHY DRIGGERS. I am the school bus driver in Hillsborugh County Florida that received the Celebrate Literacy award. This award has never been given out to a non-instructional employee in United States. A lot of awards followed. All because someone left a book on my bus one day and I decided to read it to the kids. When I arrive at their school [Lomax] I have about 25 minutes before they leave on the bus. I graduated in 1984 and went straight to work. Up to about 3 years ago I never even thought about reading a book. In those 3 years I have read about 40 books–a lot of them to the kids, a lot for myself. One of my favorites was Peak. I hardly ever get out of the county, but I can say I’ve been to the top of the world through your writing. Thank you for that. Now Roland, words can’t say how much I am hungering for the book to follow Tentacles. You are an amazing writer. Is there a way to find out when this book might be out my friend? Down here in Florida watching college football today and resting. Happy holiday to you and a happy new year. Sorry if this was to long.
Thanks Timothy! You made my weekend. And congratulations on the Celebrate Literacy Award! Keep reading. To answer your question about the third Cryptid Hunters book… I’m working on it right now, which means it will be awhile before it’s out. Stay tuned. I’ll post updates here and on my Face Book Fan Page.
Here’s an article from the St. Petersburg Times about Timothy’s Award.
