Happy soon-to-be 2012! The Titanic centennial approaches. I want to thank everyone who has already bought and read Starboard at Midnight. You have helped to keep legend alive — people, events, stories that mean so much and even more — long after they are gone only from sight. And to friends who have taken time to tell me how they feel:

Dreaming teems with fine finesse. Having and sharing this big/little book is a dream fulfilled. But your positive commentary is the fairy tale come true.

Frances Wilson, author of How To Survive the Titanic, or the Sinking of J. Bruce Ismay, has written me an email: “Your book is wonderful, and I have cited it in a piece I have just written for the Literary Review about the best Titanic books. You tell a powerful, moving story which thousands of readers will love.”
