I wouldn't have made it this far in my life and my new endeavor as an author without the following influences:

Chuck Schliebe for being the best first grade teacher an imaginative boy could have. You helped shape my life over forty-five years ago.

My parents Ken and Bobbi, who gave me a love of reading at an early age.

Jennifer, Kenny, Sarah, Josh, Chelsea, Sofie and Avery, you are an awesome family and have never complained when I headed to my desk to write every night!

Cyndi and Erich, thank you for being an amazing sister and brother. You have always supported my creativity and you cheer me on.

Robert, your encouragement as we sat outside Starbucks for our weekly meeting started me down the path to writing my first book.

Dana, Kira, Anthony, Jenesis, Grace, Michelle, Jesse, Rachael, Jacob, Griffin and the rest of my peeps at Starbucks #9413, your encouragement, and the gallons of coffee, you've given me when I sit and write in my community Starbucks have helped me tremendously.

Amazing Beta Readers: Denise, Dianne, Hans, Joe, Joshua, Mark, Kelly and Kim.

Everyone who purchased and read Awakening, especially those who took the time to write reviews on Amazon—that really helps.

Joe Bonamassa, I've listened to a lot of your music while writing my books.

Connie, Mark and Michael, your writing has inspired me to create worlds of my own. You've helped me tremendously, even when you didn’t know who I was.

And last but not least, my editor,
Joe Scholes, who has helped me become a better storyteller.

A heartfelt thank you to everyone. Your support, inspiration and participation have all contributed to my happiness and success.
