November Featured Author: Sally Paradysz

This month’s Featured Author is a bittersweet event for me.  Sweet, because I am so pleased to share Sally Paradysz with the world. But bitter, because Sal died, unexpectedly, two weeks ago while on vacation in her beloved Maine.

Sal was a regular contributor in this new incarnation of A Slice of Orange. She was, in fact, one of the first authors I ask to write for us. She blogged about writing and life and nature on the thirteenth of every month.  Sal was wise, friendly, and so kind that I can’t recall hearing her say an unkind word about anyone.  I will miss her.  I know it’s a cliché, but the word is a dimmer place without Sal.  I offer my profound condolences to her partner Mel and her children and grandchildren.  Sal’s family asked that instead of flowers or donations that people do a random act of kindess for someone in need. 

If you haven’t read Sal’s book or one of her short stories, I hope you take the time to do so. Each one offers a gentle lesson on life.

    The answer is simple: branding.

  • Treasure Hunting by Kat Martin

    I found this quote in a book I was reading, words about treasure I found remarkably compelling. Years ago, I wrote a novel called DEEP BLUE about hunting for treasure on a sunken Spanish galleon.
    I’d been wanting to write another treasure story ever since, and this seemed like the perfect chance

    Marianne, I am so sorry to hear about Sally just as I was getting to know her. Please extend my condolences to her family. I will fill the day with kindness toward others and send her that bouquet.
