It's always cool to meet new local writers, and I love how Melinda tells of our first meeting--at her great-grandmother's wake (a beautiful woman, by the way, and an avid reader).
I was just thrilled when Melinda invited me to write a guest post for her blog. It's up today: Your Character is Your Story's World. While you're there, check out Melinda's link round-ups and other great posts. Melinda is a great lady descended from a long line of strong women.
Now go say hi, and tell her I sent you.
