From the Author

The Origin of This Book

It's funny. I don't think of myself as a writer. I am an electrical engineer and I design integrated circuits for
a telecommunications company. It is not as though I have written many books. Just the two. Nonetheless,
if one were to ask me how I came to write this first book, I can trace it to the exact moment.

I was sitting on the couch playing a game on the Wii with my then seven-year-old son Travis. This was our
usual as we had spent the better part of several hours a day playing various games throughout the entire
summer. Toward the end of the night, my ten-year-old daughter Melina entered the room to tell me that she
was going to bed. I realized that, as of late, I had not spent any time with her. She had been spending time
working on a book review blog of her own called Reading Vacation, so I didn't seem to see her much. It was
sad. She was getting older, and she was spending way more time with her mother, just like I was spending
way more time with our son. Then it hit me. I would write a book that would feature her (and her brother.)
I could describe the feelings that I had about my daughter getting older. I could tell about the fierce
protectiveness that fathers have as well as the joy that we have but might not show at having a daughter.
I could even weave some anecdotes of events in her life into the story. (There is a scene in the book where
a young Melina leaps off of a boat that is parked inside a store. That whole scene actually happened word
for word.)

Having decided to write a book, I needed a plot. The main characters had to be a dad and a daughter. I also
wanted to showcase women in roles that traditionally were thought of as being done by men. I rolled it around
in my head and came up with the spy genre. Finally, the dad and daughter had to spend time together so they
could talk as well as work together to solve a problem. I can't say any more without revealing the story, but I
was very happy with what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it too.
