Mark Zona, TV Personality, Host of “Zona’s Awesome Fishing Show.”

"Andy Whitcomb has a clever way of looking at seemingly mundane subjects and giving them an interesting spin. His talents as a storyteller have made him one of my favorite writers. I eagerly anticipate every funny and heart-warming tale."
