Say hello to my mentors

The beautiful lady to the left is the late, great Annabelle McIlnay, without whom I might never have finished anything worth publishing. She also gave birth to the writing workshop I now host in my home as well as COM Publishing.

The distinguished gentleman to the left is Professor James Gunn, science fiction author and pioneer in the field of teaching the genre to aspiring writers. If I had not journeyed out to Kansas twice to attend his writing workshop, I might have stopped writing altogether.

I can only hope to one day provide for someone else a tenth of the inspiration they instilled in me.
