CREDITS

 

Dedication:

The Collective Obsessions Saga is dedicated to those who were for the most part patient and supportive (but not always) during the seemingly endless twenty-seven-year creative process: first hubby Jerry Dalton (remember Word Star?), Martin Glantz (for proofing over many gin & tonics), Raphael Serebreny (first editor), Terrie Balmer for giving all eight books a chance, third hubby Wilbert Alviso (1956-2011) for his insight and sacrifice, and the author's ever-loving yet mischievous "children" Foofer (1997-2007), Rainee and Kiki.

Other Resources:

Wikipedia proved invaluable in my research while writing the Collective Obsessions Saga. Blending true facts with fiction is a habit of mine, adding miscellaneous tidbits here and there which may seem casual but are actually carefully crafted.

 

And much thanks to Fam-Tree software. Without it, I wouldn't have been able to create the Larkin-Sullivan Family Tree. The software, along with a text spreadsheet, helped me organize and keep consistent technical relationships between fictional characters through the generations, along with images, historical notations, birthdates, marriage and divorce dates, death dates and other pertinent information. The most handy tool in the software was the "find relationship with" feature, which allowed me to click on one name in the family tree and find his/her relationship with any other name on the list in an instant.
