This was an easy one, because while there are lots of people I would like to dedicate a book of mine to, at the top of that list are my parents and my husband. I’m incredibly blessed to have such wonderful, caring and supportive people in my life.
My mother taught me to read before I even started school and took me to the library whenever I wanted. My father gave me my first science-fiction book, which kicked-off a life-long love of that genre. And when I told my husband I wanted to write stories, he told me I should—then told me again and again and again, every time I began to lose hope that my fiction would become a career.
I can’t thank them enough for their encouragement while I worked on this novel.

The wonderful tree used as the background for this website is the backcover illustration for my book ARROW. It was art directed by Laurent Linn at Simon & Schuster and illustrated by Justin Hernandez. A big thank you to them.
