This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places, and incidents are products of the author’s imagination or are used fictitiously and are not meant to be construed as real. Any resemblance to actual events, locales, organization or persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.
For your love, strength, sense of humor, laughter, care, commitment to our life together, love of our children, and for everything you do for me, everyday—it is because of you I write happy endings—I love you, John.
Special thanks to: My mom (I wouldn’t have gotten this far without your constant support and cheerleading), Robin (my first and forever cp), the HHRW critique group (esp. Kathleen, who read the entire first draft—bless you, girl), Cheri (my editor), Patti and Mimi (the best BETA readers), Jaye and Jan (for help with the beginning), Chiron, Misty, Ree, Sandy, and Missy (writing friends extraordinaire), and Bethany (my biggest fan). And although writing may be a solitary occupation, it certainly isn’t lonely. I am so grateful for all my RWA groups—NW Houston, RWAonline, Elements, and HHRW—for the knowledge, camaraderie and encouragement.
