Thanks to Ian Lamont for all his work editing and publishing this guide, Jodie Naze for graciously connecting me to Ian, and fellow writer-in-the-trenches Kevin Purdy for connecting me to Jodie in the first place. Networking works (often when you least expect it to and don’t realize it’s happening)!
My husband, Rob Pinola, patiently read five times as many words in drafts as you see here in this guide, my parents, Felipe and Ma.Ester Uy, encouraged me to continue beyond the introduction, and my daughter, Elise, forced me to write as fast as I could to get it done in time for our next playdate.
The cover was produced by Steve Sauer of Single Fin design. Greg Cusack was the copy editor.
