To my readers—thank you for being there with me through many books and many years.
To my wife—for many years, through many books, many millions of words, and many thousands of pages she’s been there, providing support and encouragement and making every place we’ve lived a home.
To my kids—for helping me see the world in new ways, for having exceptional patience and boundless love, and for making every day an adventure.
To Anne, Karen, Martin, Lucinda, Juliana, and many others who’ve helped out in ways both large and small.
Special thanks to my son Will for not only installing and managing my extensive dev lab for all my books since Windows 8 Pocket Consultant but for also performing check reads of all those books as well.
