I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for the
wonderful words of encouragement and support that I have
received from you.  It means the world to me that out of all the
books available, you chose to spend your hard-earned money on
one of mine.  I think that it is the highest kind of compliment.  I
hope you enjoyed the book!

For those of you who have sent me an email, I'd like to say again
how very much I appreciate the kind words.  As a writer I
receive a great deal of joy from telling my stories.  However,
when I receive an email from someone letting me know that
he/she enjoyed reading one of those stories, it means so much! I
wish I could answer every email, but with my work obligations
and an active seven-month-old baby at home, I'm not always
able to get back to everyone. I do read every single email,
however, and it's important to me that you know how much your
words touch me and how grateful I am for your kindness.

On those days when I feel frustrated, I think of your comments
and I realize there is someone waiting out there for the story I
am writing.  There is someone who cares and who is looking
forward to it.  It makes me feel wonderful and gives me that
push I need to set aside the frustration and seek the joy in what
I am doing.

So, thanks again for all of your encouragement and support!

Wishing you happy endings always,
