Dear Cheryl,

I just wanted to let you know I am so grateful for the work you did with Mr. Youngkin on The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre. The appendix has been absolutely invaluable in the grand hunt of trying to track down and collect Peter's work (and there's always something to hunt for when it comes to him...)

Anyway, thanks a million! I feel very fortunate to have this resource as a fan, and I am grateful for the news blog updates as well.

Cheers!
Jess Ellis

Dear Jess,

Thank you so much for your lovely comments! I appreciate them very much -- and I will also let Mr. Youngkin know how much you appreciate his book on Peter.

Stay tuned to the Lost One website! Big changes are coming that I'm sure all Lorre fans will be very pleased about.

Thanks again!

Cheryl

Ah, please do pass on my thanks to Mr. Youngkin! It's such a beautiful biography, and information on Peter, especially early Peter, was so incredibly hard to find before it came out.

I look forward to the site update!
