These books are dedicated to:
Mom, who was the first to read it and insist I keep writing so she can read the next one,
Second Mom, Chris, who always did her best to encourage me,
Sisters, Angela and Julie, who also supported me by reading it,
Tammy Spain, friend, who fell in love with the characters and couldn’t wait to read more,
Shauna Tenpenny, friend, who read it and provided some wonderful insight,
Dreaux Sawyer, who truly understood the depth of the story and provided lots of encouragement and tips,
Grandma Ross, Aunt Sis, Grandma and Grandpa Schmitz, who helped fund it,
Jennifer with Americo, who gave me a reason to go on,
My husband, Li Xi, who supports me in everything I do,
Other friends and family who might not have read the book, but provided lots of encouragement.
I would not have had the courage to make my dreams become reality if it was not for all of you.
