My Mom sent me this article from my local hometown newspaper. Cindy Dees is a guest speaker this weekend at a local RWA chapter retreat back home. Despite reporting that Dees has won the RWAR RITAR award (uh, where did those extra R's come from?), it's a really nice article. Most of it is ripped from Dees' online biography, but you know what? Not one mention of "bodice ripping" anywhere. No insinuations about Dees being some sort of deviant. And no rippin' on some of the "colorful" titles Harlequin has slapped on her books. It's really nice. Or in the immortal words of my mother:
"Wow!!! This woman is amazing!"I agree Mom. Ms. Dees sounds like she kicks some major butt.
