|An author event in Charleston where|
I, no lie, answered this exact question.
"Is Harry Shalan you?"
|Seriously, you should|
see my classroom. It's
like a museum.
|Probably my proudest moment as a teacher,|
the year I received the Milken National
Educator Award. The young lady with
me is one of many inspirations for
Harry's adopted daughter Jenn. Her name
is Marissa and she and her husband
are expecting a baby soon!
I could go on and on talking about the one fictional character I probably know better than Spenser, but I think that will suffice. To sum up, the answer to the question with which I started this post is yes and no. Harry is me, but he's most decidedly also not me. Does that clear it up?
Next week: Dee Shalan
