In July 2013, I was honored by the Redwood Branch of the California Writers Club in being chosen as their recipient of the prestigious Jack London Award, given for outstanding service to the association. I served as President from 2009-12 and have loved every minute of it, getting to know many new friends and being part of “writers helping writers.”
In March 2012, I was selected along with ten other women, to be honored for service to the community by the 6th Street Playhouse Women’s Month Celebration. The ten of us put on a show, each performing a short “act.” Some sang, danced and played an instrument; I read my poem. It was a grand evening.
