It takes one person to write a book, but it takes many people to make a book great. I’d like to thank my family, including my daughter Annikka, my husband Richard Johnson, and my parents Mike and Vicki Kirkpatrick, for supporting me and giving me the time to write. Without them, this dream of writing would be impossible. Thanks to the real Vicky Hernandez for being my muse. I hope she enjoys her story!
A huge amount of thanks goes to my DarkSide Publishing girls. This book is amazing thanks to the genius of Megg Jensen, Michelle Sussman, Genevieve Ching, and Angela Carlie. I couldn’t have dreamed of a better group of people to work with every day! The preparation for this book also went international for the first time, and I must thank Adrian Hutchinson in Leeds, England for finding all my mistakes (and thanks to my dear friend Liz Hutchinson for giving him time to do so!). Also many thanks to Jon and Mary Kennedy, and Valerie Burleigh who have helped with proofing and are always so helpful and supportive!
