Inside A Fuse #8 Production

And to my one and only agent . . .

A great deal of congratulations are due to Stephen Barbara and his lovely wife, the newly minted YA author Jessica Rothenberg.  Well done, you crazy kids!  Go off and make ye wonderful books together.  You’re both the best of the best of the best.
