A few more pictures from the Amelia Island Book Festival:

Lee Child is the #1 International best-selling author of the Jack Reacher thriller series and a couple of movies starring Tom Cruise as Reacher (more on that in a moment). Child was the headliner at the Amelia Island Book Festival, and Jackie and I had the opportunity to talk to him for a few minutes. You would never know he was a "celebrity." He was open and friendly, and he obviously enjoyed interacting with the crowd of 100+ people standing in line to get a book autographed.

I couldn't resist expressing an opinion about Tom Cruise playing the part of Reacher. Child describes his character as 6-5 and 250 pounds. Visualize that and compare to Tom Cruise, if you will! The funny thing is that he agreed! But Tom Cruise was the bankable star for movies, so, there you go. He said he's shifting to a Netflix series in which the actor who will play Reacher, as yet unidentified, will more closely resemble the character in his novels. We cheered!
