What a nice tribute to her, Dana. I know I met Sally at a conference, but can't recall which one... and of course have run across her on a couple of writer/reader sites. She seemed like a real nice lady who will be missed by many.

Dean James

An excellent tribute to a wonderful, often formidable, woman. Sally was a treasure, and we were all lucky to have known her.


Thank you, Cathy. Dean, "treasure" is a wonderful word for Sally!

Jerrilyn Farmer

Such a beautiful tribute, Dana. I, too, miss Sally and all she brought to our lives in the mysteryverse.

Elaine Viets

Thank you, Dana, for this well-deserved tribute. Sally was a good friend to mystery writers. Her criticism was always constructive, her wit was acerbic, and her friendship genuine. Next year's Malice Domestic conference won't be the same without her.

Robin Burcell

A wonderful tribute, Dana. I feel blessed to have known her for as many years as I did. She was a regular fixture at the cons, and I was so pleased that she made it to Left Coast Crime in Sacramento, and even more so that she took the time to let me know how much she enjoyed it. Had I known it would be the last time I'd see her, I would have spent even more time at the table with her(where she usually held court--in the bar, with wine in hand).

Sally, you will be missed!

Marcia Talley

I love that picture of Sally -- holding court in the lobby bar, glass of red wine in hand. It's how I'll always remember her. The mystery community has lost a dear friend.
