Fearless and Female is dedicated to my friend, Julie Marie
Ladd. Julie and I met when we became friends and next door neighbors in first grade. We went to elementary school,
junior high and high school together. After high school we both enrolled in college at Wichita State University in Wichita,
Kansas. The summer after our freshman year in college, Julie was murdered in the basement of her dormitory at the age of 19.
Julie's murderer was eventually caught, many years later. Julie had not been his first victim and through his conviction,
hopefully, this will be the last life he will ever take and the last family he will shatter.
Peace, Love and Safety!
