To my mother. I love you so much. To all the great writers of the world.
“When asked why I write, I say it is why I breathe. How I make my heart beat with life. It must be done so I can exist.”
Many thanks to Ann Kempner Fisher, my Fairy Godmother Editor and good friend.
You’re the best editor, teacher and motivator.
Special thanks for the loving guidance of my Muse, K.M.
