I have a number of people to thank in making these books possible. First I need to thank Heidi Kilgras at Random House who was very supportive in the development of both of these books. She also published my first book, I'm Looking For A Monster!. I'm also indebted to Ronnie Herman, who helped me refine my style and taught me much about the picture book game.

This is the dedication in Shadows On My Wall:

For Mrs. Mary Hill, who taught me the love of good books,
and Mrs. Louise Ellvinger, who taught me the fun of art.

Mary Hill was my 5th Grade teacher who introduced me to both Shakespeare and Tolkien and Mrs Ellvinger was my elementary school art teacher from 1st through 8th grade.

They're Coming! is dedicated to my wife and children.

I also want to thank my fellow authors who make up the KidLit Author's Club. We support each other and do events together and they are a great bunch to hang around with.

Of course I can't leave out the wonderful people at Schiffer Publishing, who do such great work making my books look their best, as well as their sales, marketing and distribution teams. I also want to thank Jennifer Ginn, author of Lobsters On The Loose, for the introduction.

Lastly, but not leastly, I want to thank the people who supported my Kickstarter campaign for Shadows On My Wall and They're Coming!
