This book would not have come about without the help of many others. I would like to thank the following as I have in my acknowledgments in the book:
I thank all who helped bring this book about. Much gratitude goes to all you readers who kept reminding me that you are awaiting my next book. You are the reason this book matters. I hope these stories will connect you with your own memories.
I want to thank all my friends in Vermont who were there when I was developing my writing skills: members and teachers of my writing classes and groups, those who read drafts of my writing along the way, and other friends who supported my endeavors.
This book might never have come about without my late friend, Marie Houle. In 2016, a year before she left this world, she told me she’d read both of my published books and asked if I was writing another. When I said I wasn’t, she said, “Saloma, you have been given a gift—for writing—and you may not squander that gift!” I was moved by her reminder that I have a responsibility to accept and develop the talents I was given.
My appreciation goes to friend and coach Russ Eanes for his advice during the self-publishing process; to Pamela Johnson from TechPro Publications for designing the book cover; to Marjorie Turner Hollman for her content editing; to Frances B. King for her copyediting; and to April Sachs for proofreading.
I am grateful to Kathie Weaver Kurtz and Esther Stenson for their thoughtful critiques and moral support throughout the writing of this book, and for their ongoing support of my writing.
My deepest gratitude goes to my husband David who has read several drafts of everything I’ve written. He has a knack for coming up with good titles, which is where Liberating Lomie came from. His love and support over the years mean everything to me.
