A Note from the Author

I hope everyone has enjoyed reading my story as much as I've enjoyed writing it. This all came about from a recurring dream I used to have about me having the ability to turn into a dolphin, but for some odd reason I could never find enough water make the change. Dolphins always seem to have so much fun and have intrigued me to no end. They are fascinating creatures.

I had it pointed out to me by private email that I have Timmy in the first chapter not breathing for over ten minutes. Wow! I don't know why I didn't catch that. If anyone else finds bloopers of this kind when reading this story or any other story that I may submit to Fiction Press, please, feel free to let me know. I value any input of this type, and it will help me grow in my writing skills.

I did a huge amount of rewriting in the last two chapters. The shark attack was brand new, and I think it made the story tons better than the way I had it written originally. I was also tempted to leave the last paragraph of Chapter 15 and the Epilog off and end the story there. I do think it would've worked that way. Please let me know your thoughts on this. Should I have ended the story at that point or does that last paragraph and the epilog make a big enough contribution to the ending to leave it there? Just let me know. Okay?

Right now, I have no plans for writing a sequel to this story, but I do have another story in mind that's not even remotely related to this one. I have a rough outline wrote down for it at this time, so it might be awhile before I submit any of it. But, I promise that I won't stop with just this one story.
