Acknowledgments

Thanks for the help and support of my husband, Leighton Wingate; my sister, Carolyn Lutz; and my dear friend Victoria Summerley, who graciously provides solid British background for my settings and characters. I could not do without feedback from my critique group—Louise Creighton, Kara Pomeroy, and Joan Shott.

Researching
The Rhyme of the Magpie
was a delight, including time spent in the village of Long Melford, Suffolk. I researched online at these sites: the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds
(www.rspb.org.uk)
and Suffolk Wildlife Trust
(www.suffolkwildlifetrust.org).
I wish it were possible to catch more than a Facebook video clip of BBC Two's
Springwatch
on this side of the pond.

My life as a writer is made easier by Colleen Mohyde of the Doe Coover Agency, who is never too busy to discuss the latest British movies, books, and TV shows. My writing is greatly improved by the wise counsel of my Alibi editor, Dana Isaacson.
