As all writers know ... to write a book does not just happen. You don't wake up one morning and say I am going to write a book, and then go and do it. At least it did not happen that way for me.
It took encouragement, nudging, prodding, pushing and a daily drive from my family, friends & neighbors. They liked my stories (at least, said they did), and encouraged me to write a book, 'RESCUE / doubtful' is that book. What I am trying to say, is that without these people's encouragement and urging me on, this book and others would never have been written.
I have many friends on the Internet, some who have read some of my stories and who have pushed me to write the book, so I wish to acknowledge them as well. It would not be fair to try and name them, for surely I would miss someone, but they know who they are ... and they have my most sincere THANK YOU.
I wish to give a special acknowledgement to my good friend , who lives in the UK, who was on me almost daily to write the book, and for his help in editing it. 'Thanks Martin'.
There is one more acknowledgement I wish to make, and that is to myself, for I have proved to myself, that motivation can and will keep you going, even with my visual handicap.
