  2. BRAVO! BRAVO! If you don’t let us know your accomplishments we will never know them! So happy to hear! I have been following you for a very long time. I admire you, and glad that others do also. (And the money doesn’t hurt either! wink, wink) Keep up the good work, I’ll be watching!


  3. Congratulations, Ramona! Fantastic award. You so deserve it. I took your online course on Scene Writing, last year, through the Sisters in Crime. The course was fun, and lots of work, and I benefitted greatly from your comments and those of my classmates. I’m currently “locked up” to write for these cold winter months, but hope to pick up another of your course offerings in future. May the Fellowship enable you to complete whatever you’re working on. Best wishes,Liz Gordon
