```Hi Lewis,

Sorry, but your solution does not look too good for White.  If:

1. c5, then Black would take the White Queen with the Knight at e4!  And the
Knight threatens the Rook at d1 next.

This is a tricky problem.

c5, then if dxc5 then Bxa6(r) If d6 goes to d5 the Bxa6
If R at a6 moves elsewhere then white moves f7 forking the k and r backed up
by
white's B at c4.
