Over my life, there have been many who encouraged me to write. I am grateful for the support of friends Felicia Aramendia and Vicente Lozano in the early years of my writing. During my studies, there were many professors who gave me encouragement. I especially thank Richard Bausch, Susan Shreve, Vasily Aksyonov, Alan Gribben, John Trimble, Laura Furman, and Stephen Curley for their example, hope and good humor. And since I met my husband, he has been my champion, a believer in me and the sparkle of my work, always ready to hear another draft of a story and to give suggestions for improvement.
