This book is for my children, Joel, Jennifer and Jeffrey.
I must thank many people for their encouragement and support on this journey:
...my friend Sarah Wiegard: I never would’ve published my first short story without her cheerleading.
...beta readers Nelda Elder, Jen Fitzgerald and Kimberly Gould. Nelda also scoped out the Mall in Washington, D.C., complete with pictures.
