To God for blessing me with the ability, desire, and passion to write.
To my husband and children for being my biggest supporters.
To my dog, Dreyfuss for lying down by my side and keeping me company whether I was working on my book or socializing on-line with my extended family. You were the best dog in the world.
To my mother, Connie Thompson, for always encouraging me to be true to myself.
To my father, Jake Thompson, for sharing my books with the nurses, the hospital staff, and for giving me their feedback. It felt so good to know that you were proud enough of me and my book to tell the world.

If I can do half the things in my life you’ve done in your life they’ll be no end to the success in store for me!
