From the Author
Returning to the Treading Water/Marking Time world was like spending time with precious old friends. Most of you know that Jack Harrington was my very first fictional character, so it was a great thrill for me to bring him back in Coming Home. I enjoyed the themes of forgiveness and redemption in this book, as well as the growth the characters experienced in the decade between Marking Time and Coming Home.
A special thank-you to my editor Linda Ingmanson, who is so very good to me by making time for me whenever I need her. Linda, you've become a wonderful friend since we've begun working together, and I couldn't do what I do without your support. Linda introduced me to proofreader extraordinaire Toni Lee, who is the last set of eyes on every book. Toni, I've become addicted to your eagle eye, and wouldn't dream of releasing a book without your review. Thank you to my writing pal Cheryl Brooks for the information she shared with me about aging horses. A great big thank-you to my beta readers Ronlyn Howe, Kara Conrad and Anne Woodall, always the first to read my books and provide invaluable feedback and suggestions.
Thank you to Chris Camara and Julie Cupp, my former and current coworkers, whose faithful assistance allows me to write more. As always, thank you to Dan, Emily and Jake for supporting my writing career and to Brandy and Louie for being my office mates during the day.
Finally, to my wonderful, faithful, lovely readers--there are simply no words to tell you what each of you means to me. Your e-mails, participation in the reader groups, your comments on Facebook and Twitter, and your enthusiastic appreciation for my books make me smile every day. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
