Authors: Geoff Herbach
Thanks so much to Jim McCarthy, my great agent. To Leah Hultenschmidt, my editor, who I have called a swing doctor for books.
She said, “What does that mean?” I said, “I don't know, exactly, but it's a very good thing to be.”
To Sourcebooks generallyâI love working with all of you. Thanks to my excellent mom, my genius wife, Steph, and to all those kids we hang with: Leo, Mira, Christian, and Charlie. My family is inspiring in a million ways. Thanks to librarians and teachers who keep getting books in kids' hands.
Finally, thanks to Minnesota State, Mankato, and the Andreas Endowment for the wonderful support.
