I would like to express my deep appreciation and gratitude to:

The students in my writing classes, who have challenged and inspired me with their questions, their insights, and their wonderful stories.

My writer colleagues and friends, with whose encouragement I have discovered so much about what I know about writing. To mention only a few: Dave Bischoff, Lawrence Block, Janet Dawson, Susan Dunlap, Syd Field, Suzanne Gold, Jonnie Jacobs, Theo Kuhlmann, Bette Golden Lamb, J.J. Lamb, Janet LaPierre, George Leonard, Lynn MacDonald, Larry Menkin, Marcia Muller, Bill Pronzini, Shelley Singer, Laurel Trivelpiece, Penny Warner, Mary Wings, Judith Yamamoto, and Chelsea Quinn Yarbro. There are many more, and I value them all.

Mary Loebig Giles and Don Gastwirth, who gave me the opportunity to write this book.

Charlie and Agness, who have been supportive, patient, and generous throughout the process, as they always are.
