I just heard that the person in my writers group with the brain tumor died yesterday. She passed away peacefully, losing her heroic battle with cancer.
I didn't know her very well. We'd exchanged critiques as well as supportive emails cheering each other's successes, but never spoken in real life. She was a talented writer with wit, humor, and a distinctive worldview. I'm saddened that I'll never get a chance to meet her in person.
