Much thanks to those who have helped me through the writing, publishing and marketing processes.  This is only a partial list, of course. I know I have some hidden benefactors out there.  And if I have not listed you here and you have helped me along the way, I assure you it’s a matter of information overload and not a reflection of my thanks.

This is an evolving list, so don’t be surprised if you see yourself added!
