This book is for Jim McCarthy, my funny, brilliant, patient agent, who signed me when I was in Sedona, encouraged me when I was in Japan, laughed with me when I came back to Florida, and gave me good news when he was in Germany. Ours is a marvelous and international relationship.

And for the always delightful Cindy Hwang, my editor, who said yes when I wanted to take Luke and Rio on continuing adventures.

And, especially, for Mom, who always said, “My daughter can do anything!”

And so I did.
