I got a text from my sister last week, with a picture of her holding my book. I knew my acknowledgment at the end of my book was missing some people. Carrie, my wife, commented on how supportive my family is. And she is right. I live in an amazing support network. I hope I fill my part as much as all of those friends and family do in my life. How do I mention them all?

You see, I realize that this network stretches far beyond what I can see. There are my sisters, Anita and Patti) My children (David, Jenni, Lynette, Alison, and Tim), My wife (Carrie), My friends, their friends, and friends of friends I’m not aware of. Each person in this network strengthens it and helps each person extend themselves to offer that support to those around us.

Thank you! All of you. Despite the storms that may pass over each of us. We have those in our lives who form a shelter for us all.

About Dale

Stories have been a part of my life forever. I have heard them, read them, and told them as long as I can remember. I’ve written hundreds of stories. Bits and pieces of stories. This is my first novel. It is the result of a story that refused to die. It kept unreeling in my mind. After a year of this haunting, I had no choice but to write it. What started as a simple damsel in distress story changed once I met the damsel. As I wrote this set of stories the world I imagined grew. After rewrites, revisions, and letting it bake. I’ve discovered more. More of the politics of the region. More relationships between people. Now as I begin a sequel to this first book, I’m finding more complexity than I ever imagined and more loose strings that need to be explored.
