For L.K. Madigan

I mentioned my fellow writer and 2009 Deb L.K. Madigan last month, because we were doing a giveaway to support her books in light of her sudden illness. Yesterday, we got the very sad and difficult to accept news that Lisa has passed on.

I am tearing up as I write this because it is so difficult to accept. It happened so quickly, and I kept hoping that things would turn around for her and she would conquer this cancer as she was able to with another 20 years ago. I never got to meet Lisa in person, but we talked frequently through the Debs blog and exchanged critiques on a couple of our novels. I am so grateful for having gotten to know her, and to receive her thoughtful advice and enjoy her wonderful sense of humor, and I wish so very very much that we could have known each other longer.

You are missed, Lisa.

Kate Messner expresses the power of Lisa’s words far more eloquently than I could, and her agent, Jennifer Laughran, has posted a moving tribute.

For those who still wish they could help, April Henry offers details about the trust set up for Lisa’s son. Please pass this on to anyone you think would want to know.

And if you haven’t picked up Flash Burnout and The Mermaid’s Mirror yet, why not do it today?
