I want to send out a special thank you to my family. To my children who recently urged me to finally publish my novel. To my sisters, brother and mom who have always been behind whatever endeavor I’ve undertaken. To my friends at work who read sample chapters while I was writing the first draft and couldn’t wait for the next chapter to hit their desks. Without the support of my friends and family this novel would probably still be gathering dust in my desk drawer.
In Loving Memory
I’d like to dedicate this novel to my family pet who was more family than pet, Max. Sadly he passed over the rainbow bridge recently at the young age of less than 3 years old. He was my friend, my companion and sounding post for anything I had to say. He never walked away from me no matter what my mood and never argued with me either. His love of the water kept him jumping into the pool all summer long and I didn’t begrudge him that simple pleasure. I cleaned out the filters filled with his long yellow hair without complaint … well, not much anyway. He will always be a part of me and hold a special place in my heart.
