Books can be like valentines. The dedications and acknowledgments show that you care and appreciate certain people enough to acknowledge them in your most precious creative efforts. Here I share the dedications for all four books in my urban fantasy series.
Saichi Kawahara was my ukulele teacher and bandleader of the Kapalakiko Hawaiian Band in the San Francisco Bay Area. I remember his kindness to me (even though I was not a good student), as well as his solidarity with the Hawaiian sovereignty movement.
