This book is dedicated to the "real" PJ, my daughter Promise! She was the direct inspiration for PJ, who is based on her personality. She has inspired much of my work, and will always do so.
Special thanks go to a number of people, including, but certainly not limited to: Ed Baquera (PJ's very first reader, who literally snatched pages from me as I finished them!), Glen Furnish, Richard Barton, Michael Topoll, Shawn Cole, Steve Keck, Eric Hester, Robert Vezendy, and many others who read the manuscript and offered their suggestions, criticisms, encouragement and praise. Without them, this book would never have been finished.
