For Young Elijah Isaiah
You are good enough. You can accomplish your dreams. You can serve others by sharing your imagination.
Reading and Listening to the thoughts that come out of my brain. This is only possible because of you. Share in the success, as you have shared in the pain and hard work.
I would like to thank everyone who helped make this novel possible. Even those who weren’t aware of the impact they had in my life and helped provide fuel for me to persevere. Your contributions made this happen and I will never forget it. Thank you to the few who read the book at its rawest state and gave honest feedback, even when it could have potentially hurt my feelings. Thanks specifically to Shiva, who really took the time and discussed ideas, characters, plot holes and everything in between on countless occasions. It really means a lot to me. Your importance on this journey cannot be understated. Thanks to my Mother, Brothers, Sister and family who each supported me in their own way. Most importantly, I want to thank my love Rebeca. You’ve witnessed my rough moments, high moments and even the self-doubt to finish the project. I had no idea I wrote this story with you in mind. You’re my reason and I greatly appreciate how much you’ve been there for me. From this author, there are no words to explain how important you are to my journey, this novel and me.
