    1. Thanks, Dave! 🙂 It’s been great fun catching up with you recently, and it’s great for me to see an old friend and classmate succeeding with his own business. I wish you continued good luck!

      2. Oh my GOD! Adam!! I can’t believe it is actually you!! I have tried to find you, your brother and Shawn on social media for years!! Would you believe that all three of you guys have somewhat common names? (I’m thinking “Huhn” is either German or Dutch?) How the heck are ya!! Of COURSE I remember telling ghost stories with you guys under the porch! It is one of the things that made me want to become a horror writer — I talked about it in one of the interviews I did after my novel was published!! I mentioned you guys in a recent blog post too: https://ericrobertnolan.wordpress.com/2015/06/03/this-makes-me-think-of-shawn-degnan-jason-huhn-and-adam-huhn-and-telling-ghost-stories-under-the-porch/

  1. Well aren’t YOU adorable! It seems from the top o’ the page photo that you are a lover of my drug of choice as well (coffee, of course). I, too, have some Irish in my lineage, and am a displaced New Yorker (adoptee) who spent some time on the Virginia side the beltway. (“Shared custody” – lol.)

    From reading this About page, we seem to have more than a few elements in common, including the fact that we are BOTH awake and on the ‘net at going on 2:30 AM Eastern! So I have clicked to follow you (and not just because you followed me first, btw, but thanks for that).

    Congrats on publishing your novel – I LOVE the title! I shall put it on my lengthy reading list based on what little I’ve read of your phrasing and Kimi Small’s review snippet, plus the fact that your descriptions are “cinematographic.” My first career was acting/directing.
