Note from the Authors
Four years ago, our initial inspiration to write a book came from these four statements:
One Small Act of Kindness can make a big difference.
Sometimes the journey is more important than the destination.
The sum of our sameness is greater than the totality of our differences.
From the beloved Alex Trebek, “We are trying to build a kinder, gentler society. If we all pitch in a little, we can get there.”
We wanted to bring these messages to readers in a way that was entertaining but also inspire them to feel good about making changes in their lives and those around them. This was a constant intent throughout the whole story.
Although it was a challenging task, we enjoyed working together, brainstorming for hours, compromising, and analyzing every plot line until we were both satisfied that we had accomplished what we had set out to do.
