Today is our youngest child’s 18 birthday, which I guess makes it some kind of landmark in the annals of my long slog to old age and decrepitude.
But let’s not make it about me!
When it came to coming up with a dedication for my upcoming middle grade survival story, it was an easy decision to make.
Thank you, Maggie, for the inspiration!
And from Blood Mountain (Fall, 2019) . . .
This book is dedicated to my daughter, Maggie —
because when I needed inspiration
for a girl character who was fierce,
determined, sensitive, and kind,
I only thought of you.
