Many thanks for your books. I read The Prince of Tides in the early 90s - it was my discovery that family secrets are kept by other families too - one of those turning points in a person's life. I have read all your other works, and reread The Prince of Tides this past month just to see its effect on me, now almost 20 years later. While the secrets still resonate - the powerful prose overwhelmed me and wrapped in the rapture that reading should be - once again thanks. Love, love, love the cookbook - I can see the pounds coming on as I choose which recipe to try next. You are a treasure that readers are lucky to know.

Pat Conroy, I'd like you to know that you inspired a recent trip to Charleston where my friend and I significantly contributed to the area's economy. I embarked on a reading adventure of low country authors before the trip and am continuing it even as we speak. I'd love your suggestions about who to read! Though few will compare with your own substantial gifts. Thanks for great reading - and a great reason to visit your part of the world!

Mr. Conroy,

I am sorry to hear of your recent health scare, I wish you well. I understand that your travels will be effected, therefore, I do feel so fortunate to have been able to hear you speak and meet you aftewards for a book signing several years ago in Huntsville, Alabama. I will treasure that memory and the words of all of your books, some of which I have read several times. You have quite the gift, and I do feel as if I have known you for many years. Bless you!

Pat,
I feel compelled to write after visiting Charleston and coming home and re-reading South of Broad.

You are a gift to those of us who love to read; you are a comsumate storyteller and your life, your pain and your hapiness are tangible. When I first read The Prince of Tides, I knew you - I knew this was no ordinary story. As one of those children who have lived a similar childhood, I recognized you as a kindred spirit. You have such an incredible gift; please, please -take care of yourself - be happy and enjoy all the good in your life. I read you are very happy with your wife - a special gift, to be sure.
Thank you for your words, your stories and sharing yourself.
Take care & God bless.

So looking forward to your book about teaching high school. I have been a high school English teacher for 40 years. I was inspired early in my career by The Water is Wide. I have read all of your books, and recommend them to my students because of your stunning command of the language. My students are always telling me that I need to write a book of my 'helicopter' stories--stories that light and take off from anywhere. Perhaps when I retire, 10 years from now, I will, at age 70, embark on that journey. Please don't buy the farm yet, and please continue to write. Your words and stories are spellbinding, awesome, magnificent. I do not have enough vocabulary to express my admiration for them or for you. I hope your health is improving. Thanks for the wonderful reads. Blessings! DA

I suppose many claim knowing you. I am the neice of (Helen) Margie Mark, who was born and raised in Beaufort, SC, later met and married Andrew Olesak while he was a young Marine at Parris Island in 1943. He later bacame the director of the US Marine Band, Pacific and she became Margie Mark Olesak for the past 67 years. I have always seen you through her eyes and heard her stories of you, or through reading your books. One day, I hope to have the opportunity to see you and hear you in the flesh. In the interim, I'll be satisfied with reading your next best seller. May that be soon.

Just finished South of Broad. WOW!! I loved it!! Beach Music has been my favorite book so far but think I may have a new favorite! I have lived in Beaufort and Charleston, your books bring all the sites, sounds and feelings of those places out. Cant wait for your next book!

Hi Pat! Saw you several years ago shopping in the little grocery at Fripp. Had "Beach Music" in my car outside just in case the opportunity presented itself to get you to sign, but couldn't bring myself to impose myself on your privacy, so I brought the book in and left it for you to sign at your convenience which you graciously did. Until now, "My Losing Season" has been my favorite, but "South of Broad" is quickly taking it's place and I'm only a fraction of the way through it. I hope I can bother you to sign it some day when I return to Fripp! God Bless you and Cassandra....wish you the best!

Hi Pat: I am writing a memoir of my rites of passage as a Navy junior, whose dad insisted his boys would attend Annapolis, and we did. I had a transformation from dedicated patriot to critical cynic, sort of like Will Mclean, but my sport was Baseball. A tyrnt 130 pound Marine ran the team and discarded my reacord .516 plebe batting average to change my stance at the first meeting. Like the Losing Season, we clashed. Yoiur analysis of the kids of former Academy grads is enlightening and a wondrous description. My brainwashing almost did me in but I majored in English , refused to haze plebes and became a civil rights lawyer after navigating mach two jets, turning in my wings in a flying coffin, I navigated an amphibious ship to Vietnam. I'de love to have your input on a few chapters.
