Anatomy of a Player(125)

By: Cindi Madsen

Thanks to Gina Maxwell for pushing me through writing and editing sprints, and for being one of the coolest people I know in general. Xoxo!

I’m not sure how I wrote books before I knew Rachel Harris and Melissa West, but I’m certainly glad that I don’t have to do it without them anymore. Thank you, girls, for the endless emails and messages, and for being awesome cheerleaders in both my writing and life in general. So glad I have you girls in my corner.

Thanks to the Colorado Indie Authors for the fabulous, informative and supportive lunches, and to Evangeline Denmark, Brandy Vallance, and Carla Laureano for all the funny messages that keep me going and laughing—you girls make writing “alone” at home so much more fun!

Many thanks to Ben Coon for answering all my questions about college athletics—it helped a ton. Also, thanks for being an awesome uncle to my kiddos.

Finally, thanks as always, to my family. To Kylie, who plays mom half the time so I can get in more writing. And to my other two little cuties, from the hand-written notes, to asking about my day. I’m so lucky I have such sweet kiddos. Big thanks to Michael, who endures crazy writer brain and answers endless questions and just lets me talk, even if I never take your suggestions—sometimes I do, though, I swear! I love you for telling me to go for it when I decided I wanted to be an author.

Big thanks to everyone who picks up this book or any of my others! I super appreciate each and every one of you!
