This book is dedicated to the friends who left us too soon, but who lived each day fully until they could do no more, and especially to those we lost to pancreatic cancer. John, Mark, and Glenda, and so many others—we miss you.

Beach Rental is also dedicated to my aunt and uncle, Sallie and Ronnie Smiley who introduced me and my family to Emerald Isle and provided information about the area for this book. Thanks!


Special thanks to Kim Jacobs of Turquoise Morning Press for offering to publish Beach Rental and making it a reality, and to my editor, Jacquie Daher, for her help in making this a better book.

I'd like to acknowledge my mom who showed me the importance of reading and for her unfailing support, my dad who showed us kids it was okay to pursue any interest without fear of failure, and my sister who is a willing reader. I'd also like to acknowledge my critique partner, Nancy Naigle, who has been there riding the writing wave with me ever since fate introduced us at James River Writers. We Believe.
