I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who’s been involved directly or indirectly in the making of my book.

I’ll start with my Editor and Self Publishing Coach, Sherry Terry. You cut through the bull and helped me to improve my writing immeasurably.  You’ve also provided some wonderful advice and tips on how to self publish, I can’t thank you enough. For anyone interested, check out https://verysherryterry.wordpress.com/ for more of her work.

Thanks to my cover designer, Meghan Schofield. I’m so happy you agreed to take this project on, I was probably a huge pain in the arse to work with being a first time author and all, but you took my limited vision and turned it into a wonderful cover. Check out https://littlemegared.carbonmade.com/ to find more of Meghan’s work.

Thanks to the writers workshops I’ve been a part of, in particular, The Chalk Scribblers in London. You were the first people I put this story before who didn’t know me. Your positive feedback helped me to believe in the project.

Central Writers Workshop in Phoenix, your critiques helped me to refine my almost completed manuscript and spurred me on towards the finish line.

And thanks to my Family, you’ve been so supportive throughout the project and especially since I relocated to Phoenix, I couldn’t have done it without you.

Most importantly, I’d like to thank my friends. I’ve made some rather bold decisions over the years and while you’ve busted my balls about some of them, you’ve always been supportive and it was no different with this endeavor.

V, you were the first person I told about wanting to write and without your encouragement, it might not have happened. You helped my ideas take root and flourish.

John, Pepa, Paul, and Steve, you know me better than most so your support and feedback helped me weather the storm and see this through to its conclusion.

Ryan, you read several drafts of the story, including the bad ones, and your enthusiasm for the project was critical in keeping me focused.

Bryan, thanks for the local knowledge.

Jon & Sara, you guys are legends.

Murphy’s Misfits, Rugby is the Source!

London, Paris, Pittsburgh, Sofia, Bordeaux, Columbus, Athens (OH), Phoenix. To my friends all over the world in cities and countries too numerous to name here, thank you all!
