Nights away from home can be stressful so I bring my knitting to calm me. These two little mice were born in the Marriott Anaheim at the end of June 2012. They were quite well behaved and to the best of my knowledge didn’t leave any droppings behind.

I extend heartfelt thanks to my publisher, to those who stood patiently in line for a signed copy of SAFEKEEPING, and to a very fine gathering of guests who had a choice of how they might spend a glorious Sunday evening and elected to spend it with Marissa Meyer, Gennifer Albin, Leigh Bardugo, Faith Erin Hicks, and me.
