JauntWorld's focus is on the professional, not personal, side of my writing. But I'm breaking this rule to acknowledge the passing of my father, mentor and friend, Michael J Kreffel, this morning. He gave me nothing but praise, encouragement and assistance in all my creative endeavors, from youth to adulthood. His humorous illustrations, graphic design and writing were nothing if not inspirational to me, and formulated my career path from the start. He was the hero I looked up to, answered every question I had and made time for me. His constructive criticism helped me create my best work, whether crayon scribbles or Jaunt, and was the man I am proud to call my father.
Miss you, dad.
