Giving Thanks

To my family, for supporting me even when they all (without exception) went for advanced college degrees they earned with honors, and I barely graduated High School because I wanted to tinker with games.
To my friends, who gave me a social network that kept me alive in the darkest days, made me laugh until I nearly peed myself on the best of days, and always, always explored new imaginary places with me.
To my fans, patrons, and customers. For proving my family was right to support me tinkering with games until I made it a career.
To Green Ronin, for giving me my first solo writing gig way back in 2002, and trusting me to be the shepherd of their precious Freeport just last year.
To Paizo, for valuing me enough to move me across a country, and giving me things like health insurance and paid days off for tinkering with their games.
To the people *of* Paizo, for welcoming into one of the most wonderful places I have ever worked, accepting me for who I am, and letting me sit at the table with some of the best and most talented game creators I have ever known.
To Stan! and Lj, for trusting me to head Rogue Genius Games.
And again to Lj, who is also family, a friend, and part of RGG, for being an amazing, trusting, supportive, caring, creative, beautiful, helpful, sharing partner, for 24 Thanksgivings so far.
Seriously, to you all.
