"This award means so much to me. Writers work so hard on endings. I wanted to deliver excitement and suspense but at the very end, turn the gang into a family. And wouldn't we all like to end up with a fortune in the bank and a house with a climbing wall, a trapeze, a garden, and a yacht? Not to mention burritos! I think the best endings contain a seed for a new beginning, so I hope you'll follow the continuing adventures of the gang. I just signed up to write a sequel to LOOT! Thank you again."
