I received a wonderful email from an awesome young dude named Bradley, from New York:
I just finished reading your novel and had a few questions. First I want to know if Zoey Kate is a real person? Second I want to know, are you going to make another book? Third is Dallin Caraway a real person? I really enjoyed reading your book. Looking forward to hearing from you!
I happily wrote him back. Bradley had written from his mom's email account, so, appropriately, our correspondence went through her. Bradley's Mom said they'd be making the S'meesecake for a family BBQ.
S'mores + Cheesecake = S'meesecake. (Recipe included in my book, "The World's Greatest Chocolate-Covered Pork Chops.")
I asked for pics. They obliged.

My plan is to hitchhike to New York, run around the city shouting, "BRADLEY! BRADLEY'S MOM! IT'S ME, RYAN! YOU SAVED ME A PIECE OF CAKE, RIGHT?" and hope I find them before the S'meesecake goes bad.
New York's a pretty small town, so I should have no trouble finding them.
