“Hey, I’m Ashlyn. You spoke to my class today I just wanna say thank you. You are a very strong lady. I couldn’t imagine going through with that. I’ve had some struggles also. I was born with a rare blood disorder. It stops me from a lot of things. But your speech has really inspired me. I just wanna say thank you so much! You’re an incredible women!”
-Ashlyn O’Neal


“Fiona, I finished your book, and what an honor it is to give my review.

 Your story is remarkable, I loved your writing, I loved the way you told your adventure.  I am calling your book an adventure because I could not put it down.  It was a page turner, and I am so glad you put your life’s journey and adventure in beautiful words for us to read.  I took your book out to my daughter’s house yesterday, and her in-laws wanted to keep the book to read.

I read excerpts to Robert as you mentioned your nurse friend who was studying to be a nurse, and of course, that was his sister, Linda.

I will now be starting on Bettina the Bold.  Thanks for autographing both books for me.”

Love from your friend,

Lynda Leckie
