IN THE REARVIEW: About seven years ago, an outstanding and talented author named Mimi Barbour, the leader of Mimi’s Gang and famous worldwide with more awards and titles than I can count, adopted me into her writing family. Along with the joy I felt professionally, I was fortunate to gain about thirty sisters. It was a privilege not many authors obtain while they pen along during sometimes lonely careers.  

They taught me the skills necessary to succeed on some level in this very difficult industry. Some of them shared their joys and tragedies with me, and I was honored by their trust. Through this group, I was also able to connect with readers, make treasured friends in other parts of the industry, join organizations, and learn things I might not have figured out on my own. I’m very grateful.

I also don’t know how I would’ve gotten beyond the tundra after Joe died without the support of these outstanding, talented, and empathetic women. Sisters in theory who propped me up when it was difficult to stand, who gave me work to do (writing in sets). They gave me a purpose and I hope in some small way I’ve been able to return the many favors.

Some of you I’ve been lucky enough to meet in person, and some I hope to still meet. Please take a peek at my latest banner: Spring 2024. Probably two-thirds of these stories have been written with your help, your guidance, and your support, during my treasured time as one of The Gang.
