Have read and loved Dick Francis books for years
When Felix started writing I felt he tapped into his Fathers writing method, however ICED is totally Felix Francis (in my mind) absolutely fantastic loved it
Await the next one! Thank you Helen Liddington

I just finished reading Flying Finish by y our father Dick Francis. Here we have Henry landing the plane at Fenland with two dead men one bad guy and a seriously injured pilot Patrick. What happened next. Would be nice to see a sequel of this story sometime.

Hi Felix:
I am from Canada. I love all the books you have written and your father also. I started reading Dick Francis several years ago. I had no knowledge of horse racing. The writing was excellent. I was sorry when your father passed away. I am glad you took up writing. Your books are wonderful.

The reason I am commenting is that I was wondering if there are any stories coming up about Kit Fielding and his twin, Holly Allardeck. After Bolt, and the demise of Maynard, I really wanted to hear more.
Please consider doing another book based on these two.

I would like you to write a blurb for a coming mystery/thriller I have written. Is that a possibility?

Where can I find out who did the cover art for the 1980 US edition of Reflex, published by Fawcett Crest?

Felix, Hope all is well your way, I have the following question? Is Proof the only book written by you or your Dad that features Tony Beach as the protagonist?

I am part way into your new book Guilty or Not Guilty and am already wishing you had spent a little more time developing a plot rather than one that has been used ad infinitum. The mean cop, the picked on husband, people cancelling jobs, has been done over and over and I am sure your father would be very disappoionted at the way you are using his name to publish books to make money.

Dear Felix Francis: plot suggestion based on real event
1923 race at Belmont Park, New York, USA
Jockey Frank Hayes died mid-race from a heart attack. His body stayed in the saddle until after his horse crossed the finish line and WON ---a 20-1 outsider victory.

Mr. Francis,

I continue to enjoy your books as much as I enjoyed the ones from your dad and the ones from both of you. I think I have read all but the latest. I imagine you have a researcher who has been following this story but if not, I thought it might interest you.

A little constructive criticism of your grasp of jockeys. Having ridden and been around race tracks for decades I can tell you that riders are absolutely fearless and the toughest people on earth. Race tiding makes all other sports look tame. I just read your book silks and I can tell you that no one week kneed enough to be intimidated to the point the main character was could last long at any race facility at least here in the US and I donít believe our cousins across the sea are less than we.

I particularly enjoyed "Pulse" and would now like to read "Guilty Not Guilty" but it does not seem to be available in Australia.
Is it or will it soon be available here?

I just finished Gamble and wanted to encourage you to write another book about Nick Foxton. There are so many unanswered questions. Did Claudia survive? Did they have a family? What direction did his life take? What happened to all the accounts of his racing friends?
Iíve been reading the ďFrancis BooksĒ from the beginning and have loved every one. Thank you for carrying on the legacy.

I was brought up by a Dick Francis lover and own nearly all his books. Iíve just re-read Banker for the nth time. Like all good books I miss the characters for a while afterwards. Anyway, how about a book with Tim Ekaterin again? I want to know what happened to him!
Iíve also had all your books from the library btw, I just donít buy books anymore.

I just finished Pulse, and must say I loved the main character. It was refreshing to read about a character who is not perfect. I hope she may come back in a future book. Thank you for talking about issues honestly that many people face, and including a great story. Loved it!

Did you know 2013 Refusal been left out of the books page on your website?

HI
I have just finished reading Triple Crown which I very much enjoyed. However, on page 432, a BAD proof reading error has occurred. Suddenly Bob Wade is called Bob DEAN, your proof readers need shooting!

I would absolutely love to read another book about the character Kit Fielding who starred in Break In and Bolt. Would a follow up be manageable?

Sincerely,

Elizabeth Duty

The way I read a Francis novel:
Get it home. Put it on the dining room table. Look at it. Giggle that it is now mine to read. Make sure the house is in order so there will be no distractions. Make sure the dog has gone out and is fed. Make sure dinner will be ordered in so I can concentrate on the novel. Pour a glass of wine. Toast the book. Inhale the serenity that I will get from starting the novel. Sit in my favorite chair and begin...

Dear Mr Francis

I grew up with Dick Francis novels, they were among the first adult books I read as a teenager and now, in my fifties, I understand how much they have shaped my world and formed my life. I find myself quoting phrases from his books, explaining life through the concepts he expressed, understanding life through his principles of courage, fortitude and honour. I feel that he was one of my truest teachers and I will be grateful to him till the end of my days for giving so much to the world that was good and true - and exciting. His philosophy is a constant thread running through my life.

I wish I could have told him while he was alive.
