She started out with IFTF as an editor, but even after the bulk of her work was no longer straightening out sentences (their run-ons had run-ons!) or making sense of our idiosyncratic style guide, she remained a force for good. And by good I mean clarity. I once told her she possessed an iron fist of logic—sounds better than the accusations of being an anal editor. She made a label out of that and put it at the top of her monitor.
She’s helped me in more ways than I can count, a number of them more profound than I can share here.
(So I stuck this post in Drafts and ignored it for six months. Time for them dusty drafts to see the light of day, heal, photosynthesize, grow a little.)
