Nobody writes a book alone. I was very fortunate to work with Kristen McGuire, a crack researcher who is essential to the success of our ongoing projects for the accounting, transportation, and other industries.
Kristen fact-checked, verified, corrected, cajoled and encouraged me during the creative and reporting process, and helped keep us on track through copy editing and proofing.
At our book launch party in Chicago in June, I thanked her with a lattice quilt that I designed and stitched in the fortuitious six-week gap between submitting the manuscript and seeing the first round of copyedits. Here she is, surprised at her cozy lattice thank-you!
