A special thanks to my illustrator Dr. Tom Quaid. He not only designed the retro cover but also did the black and white chapter sketches. Wait until you see the details!

Tom Quaid, a retired cardiologist, has always had a passion for drawing cartoons and caricatures. Upon his retirement in 2009, he opened an art studio, Heart to Art, where he pursues portrait and landscape oil paintings. Tom and his wife, Susie, live in Baton Rouge, where life is good with six grandchildren.
