Acknowledgements for Just Down the Street, Across the Ocean

I am forever incredibly grateful for the army of friends and family who have stood behind me and supported me throughout this writing journey. I would never have finished it without your encouragement and help.

I also want to thank my sister, Shawna Resnick, and my friend, Lindsey Russell, who traveled to Paris & Brest with me as research for the book. It was really hard convincing them to come with me, but in the end, I don’t think they regretted it too much.

Thanks for putting up with my terribly embarrassing attempts at French (I tried once, failed miserably, and basically made them order for me the rest of the trip) and for figuring out the metro system for me. If it weren’t for you, I would probably still by standing, staring at a map of the Paris metro with a confused look on my face, unable to ask for assistance.  And in case you were wondering, the answer is yes, we ate so many Napoleons and drank so much wine.

I’d like to thank my sisters Bekah Potts and Julia Back for helping me make this book come to life. My website would probably be a weird static page with a picture of me looking horrified if it weren’t for Julia’s skills. Bekah painted the gorgeous cover page for my book. She took a very vague description that I gave her and turned it into nothing short of perfection. Seriously, you two are incredibly talented and I have never considered myself as lucky as I do in this moment that you both didn’t grow up to hate me after all the times I tortured you in our youth.

Last but not least, thank you to everyone who takes the time to read my book. You make the dream come alive.

Just Down the Street, Across the Ocean is now available on Kindle!

Author: Rachel Potts

I'm originally from Portland, OR but currently live in Tampa, FL. I'm a big fan of sunshine, warmth, and actually being able to swim in the ocean when I visit the beach - if there must be a contest, Tampa wins hands-down (much to my family's disappointment). I have been storytelling since before I could write. When I was younger, I’d either force an older family member to write down whatever story I was weaving, or I’d enjoy scaring my younger siblings by telling them a creepy story. Though I still do both of those things on occasion, I’ve graduated to more sophisticated forms of writing and will, gladly, soon be releasing my first novella (look for it in January 2019). I have a B.A. in English Literature from the University of Central Florida. I am always grateful for my degree because it keeps me company at night when I’d otherwise be alone because I have no pets or plants.
