In Memory of Jo

Josepha Sherman, Writer, Editor, Long-Time Friend of Tamora Pierce’s and Co-Editor of the Young Warriors: Stories of Strength Anthology, Died on Thursday, August 23, 2012. Jo was a fun-loving, hilarious presence on the SF scene, and leaves behind an enormous number of fan and pro friends.

R.I.P., Jo.

In Memory

My beloved agent’s oldest daughter Jesse, a fan and an animal lover and rescuer, died very suddenly. If you feel so inclined, would you make a donation to one of these causes that she supported? Even if it’s just a couple of dollars, it would help, as you know. Think of it as good wishes that will help to carry her to the Summerlands:

Many thanks,
