The site's designer and Webgineer is the infinitely patient Gordon McFarland. The "angelhead" logo was created by Leonard Seiler, based on my original design. These two gents are to be commended for bringing your technologically-challenged author into the 21st century. Dreams can become reality, but they need many midwives, and Gordon and Leonard are up to their elbows in afterbirth.

Special thanks to my test readers: Lori White, Jeneane Whitfill, Susan Dawson, Amber Rollins and Sharon Runft.

Thanks also to Sara Seely and Annette Rodriguez for their helpful comments and suggestions.

Alison's reading from Chapter Three was done by Holly Willeng, and she is the inventor of the "Wheel of Life" throw.

Many others have provided insights and emotional support, including Jyme Mariani, Ed Rogers and "The Prophet And The Madman." Here I should also thank my benefactor, who I'm sure would prefer to remain nameless, for providing the equipment and software to put me on the Internet.
