Cover Art by Blake Brandt and Stephanie Choi
I dedicate this novel to my Yorkie, Kricket, who passed away just before his fifteenth birthday. He was the only one allowed in my office when I wrote this story, keeping me company, sleeping by my desk. The pain of my loss is still evident every time I sit down to write.
Thank you to my son, Blake, and his friend, Stephanie, for the wonderful cover art. It’s always nice when you can share your artistic side with your family.
To Carly, my wife…thanks for having the same sense of adventure as me. It sure makes life more fun when I don’t have to fight with my better half when I want to try something, or move somewhere new.
At least we missed another cold, snowy winter.
