It's impossible to list everyone who, over a lifetime, has helped to encourage my writing in general and assisted with this book in particular.

However, I do need to mention:

My parents
Jackie LaRonde
My cats

Of course, my awesome beta-readers:

Benita Burger
Brook True
DaraLynn Hill
Elizabeth Lombard
Jill Blanchard
Linda Mull

who made this a better book

And Robin Collet for the wonderful cover art!

A very special thanks

Charles de Lint, almost 20 years ago, encouraged me and taught me a whole new way to look at and refine my own rough work. That made all the difference.
