This is an exciting, nerve-wracking, beautiful, overdue and scary time for me. A book that took me 49 years to write is finally finished and it’s getting out there slowly but surely. I hope you’ll all let me know what you think — good, bad and in-between — through emails, social media, or posting your reviews on Amazon.
More to come soon! In the meantime, I’ll repeat what I wrote for the inside of the book:
With deep gratitude to the readers of janedevin.com, who heard my voice and encouraged me to keep speaking.
To those who understood that a white flag doesn’t always mean surrender—that sometimes the bravest thing we can do is to seek peace: Much thanks to Colette Jacobsen, Samantha Thomas, Suzi Kressler, Bruce Nunnally and Teri Matheason Voyna.
It is often the case when living hand-to-mouth that both are empty. I deeply appreciate the generosity of those supporters—too numerous to mention—who contributed resources that made the completion of Elephant Girl possible. Thank you to Rick Stabile and Doc Sheldon for being dedicated proofreaders. Thank you to Jessica Gottlieb, Tanis Miller and Karoli Kuns for their encouragement. Thank you also to Terry Kline and Connie Burke of General Motors and Karen Smith of Verizon Wireless.
For writing a beautiful song to accompany Elephant Girl, I thank Suzen Juel, a brilliant composer and lyricist as well as a generous soul.
Finally, I thank everyone who ever gave me a chance, a helping hand, a warm smile, or a good word. You are who makes the green fields possible, both in reality and imagination.
