I want to thank everyone who read my contest entry and voted for it. I'm honored to have come out on top.
I also want to emphasize that I'm fully aware of the role that all you readers have played in my "career" as an author. It was your comments, and complaints and advice and applause that helped me hone the skills I have. I may have some talent for writing, but it is you who developed it.
I also want to thank Peaches and Michelle for the wonderful support they give me. They are also intimately responsible for the quality of what you read.
The bottom line is that you, the readers out there, are what make writing fun and rewarding. So I thank you for that as well.
