This book is a work of fiction and any resemblance to persons, living or dead, or events is purely coincidental. They are productions of the author's fevered imagination and used fictitiously.

Surrounding me is a team of people, supporting my writing and constantly steering me away from making a fool of myself. There’s Linda Anderson, my tireless editor and champion of grammar. Then there are my early readers and safety nets: Katherine Coolon, Kira Miles, Zate Lockard, and last but certainly not least, my mom. I love all of you and couldn’t do this without you.
Then there is Andreas, who has done so much for me that I could write an entire book about it. Maybe I will someday.
To Zate – my kindred spirit and fellow wanderer in worlds unknown.
