Death of a Mercenary: Foreword



FOREWORD


In writing this play, I am indebted to international award winning author Mary Doria Russell (the Sparrow, Children of God) for her friendship and her invaluable assistance in discussing the manuscript with me in detail; to Sophie Campos de Orsini for helping me harness the inner demons into a story; and my keeper, my brother Ricky Nelson Rivera for putting up with me.

Above all, I would like to express my gratitude to those whose aid was enlisted to read and criticized various scenes and those who allowed me to use them as role models for my characters. Your knowledge, acumen, and helpful suggestions have infused the work with life.
