I have several heroes to speak of some I have pictures of some I'll just have artwork that they've done for me to represent them. The first person I am going to talk about is my best friend and fellow writer Melissa Goodman. AKA Missy. She is my best friend and we've been through as we like to say 'the fire' together.

She's been through a lot in the last year, losing her father and resolving to write more has yielded her three stories she is now ready to submit and try to get publish. And I'm right here cheering the loudest. She finds herself a little overwhelmed by the submissions process and is looking for the right home for her work. Again, I'm right here as her best friend, but she is my hero.
I tell her all the time I wouldn't want to meet her in a darkened alley ;) but if she calls you friend you couldn't ask for a better ally IN that darkened ally.

What I would like to do is take a moment and say is thank you to you all for being such great friends, and to Daniel, thank you for being an inspiration, and promise not to lick you like a lollipop like I'm always saying I'm going to do in private, in a whisper, into a pillow, where no one can here me.
