I wanted to let you know that I just purchased your book! Congrats on its
release. I look forward to seeing your wise words in print that I heard for so

I'm now in a theatre company in SF as well as doing the
commercial/voiceover/industrial side of the business. Tomorrow I will be doing a

Thank you for giving me such a great foundation to begin my acting life. Take
care Cliff and I wish you continued success!
