- Tonya – I hope she knows I’m totally rooting for her, too
- Xiane – She’s had stuff, but it hasn’t caused her to lose touch with the core of the people she cares about, or with her own creative drive (though she might not see it herself.) Xiane does seem to underestimate her own strength.
- Angelique – Always creative, encouraging and there with a kind word.
- Kevin – He has rooted for my writing career since we met ten years ago.
- Mike – We have our ups and downs, but when it comes to my creative work, he’s always fully behind it.
