Acknowledgements





 It’s been a wild ride since I first published The Mistaken. I never imagine this community of writers and authors could be so close, so helpful, and so supportive, but honestly, I never would have made it through without them. Of course, there are so many, I could fill up a book, but for those closest to me, my deepest, humblest thanks and love…

To Jeff O., for reading outside your comfort zone and teaching me a thing or two, or twenty, about writing.

To Dana M., for your plethora of ideas and the occasional knock upside the head to make me see reason, and for being a wonderful friend.

To Katie M., for your patience, generosity, and kindness as I stumble my way through this indie journey.

To Tammy, my word-beautician, who tells me where to cut, cut, cut!

To Julie R., for holding my hand, letting me scream, and reassuring me that I was not crazy or too old to pull this off.

To Stacy B. D., my personal burst of sunshine.

To my sweet friend and skilled graphic artist, Carrie Butler at Forward Authority Design Services, for working so hard to put my cover together and bring my vision to life.

To “my girls”: Marilyn, for being my single greatest cheerleader and the sweetest, most generous person I know. Karen, for your unwavering support, not to mention editing my monster for little more than a smile and a thank you. And to Julie H., for making me laugh and keeping it real. You three ladies have been a godsend this last year. Your complete and unconditional love and support keep me sane and make me laugh on a daily, if not hourly basis. Without you girls, I’d be one lonely lady.
