Character Dear Reader Letter: Rover from Morrie Richfield’s inspirational fantasy ‘Mr. Breeze’
January doesn’t have to be all about freezing temperatures and nothing to do! Literarily Speaking will be hosting authors from January 2 – 25 with a fun way to get through the winter doldrums. We are asking authors to have their characters write letters to their readers. If your character had a voice (and of course they do!), what would they like to say to their readers? Now they finally have a say! Put on a hot toddy, light the fire and read these way cool letters to YOU, our dear readers!
Today’s guest is Rover from Morrie Richfield’s Mr. Breeze!
Rover is a German Sheppard Dog that Michael Ryan and Mr. Breeze encounter during their time together. Rover is not a normal dog he has been endowed with remarkable capabilities.
First of all I hope all of you humans had a wonderful Holiday season and that you all got the presents you were hoping for. I also hope you were not only kind to your fellow man (something some of you seem to be not very good at) but to your pets as well. Give your dogs a bone every now and then and if you happen to be a cat person (never could get what you humans find appealing about those purring things) give them something special as well.
You might even consider the animals that are not so lucky to have thoughtful and decent owners like the ones in shelters or the ones hiding in your yards. When it gets cold and the snow falls food can be hard to find so step up and help when you can. They could certainly use all the help they can get.
Now about this book Mr. Breeze. I have read all the reviews and how this writer is so great and no one has ever read anything like it before and how it changed people’s lives and I’m getting a little tired of not hearing about what a great character I am!
After all I am important to the story and I want some recognition. I deserve it and until I get some I am going to start pissing on anything I can find. So unless you want your clothes your house, your bed, or even your spouse smelling like dog piss I suggest you go to wherever you bought the book at and leave a stellar review about me that’s right me Rover! Remember I have remarkable abilities.
Morrie Richfield lives in Pennsylvania with his two sons, his dogs and his cat. He is working on his next novel, and he still dreams that someday the world will be a better place for all of us to live.
His latest book is the inspirational novel, Mr. Breeze.

MR. BREEZE (the title is inspired by a song by the rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd) follows the increasingly amazing experiences of freelance photojournalist Michael Ryan as he hears of stories about a man named Zack, who can seemingly perform inhuman feats that could be called miraculous. Ryan eventually meets Zack and becomes, at Zack’s insistence, Zack’s messenger. Along the way, a dog named Rover, who also possesses otherworldly powers, joins Zack and Ryan in their adventures, which include a remarkable visit to the Centers for Disease Control, in Atlanta, in search of a cure for AIDS.
The secret of who Zack is and why he has chosen Ryan to tell his story to the world forms the surprising and moving climax to the book.
And there is a MR. BREEZE sequel in the works, Richfield notes. The working title is REVELATION: THE RETURN OF MR. BREEZE. “The second book is about how we take that message (from the first book) and what we do with it.”
In the meantime, Richfield hopes that readers of MR. BREEZE find the storytelling compelling. I also would like them to be entertained and to want to tell others about it. If they come away wanting to be a better human being, that would be a huge plus.”
