W is for WANDA

untitled (11)

In the course of marketing my work in cyberspace, I have made many friends. My friend WANDA is one I treasure immensely, she is from Pretoria, South Africa and has managed to unite so many writers and readers throughout the world.  She runs a group aptly called Wanda’s amazing Amazon reviewers (WaAr) in which she has made a huge difference in many of our lives. She writes as well, with great passion, feeling and depth, How could I choose anything else for W?

I enjoy working with Wanda as much as our fun private chats, she is a true friend, one for whom I have felt happiness and sadness, laughed with and had very deep conversations with, she is a fantastic editor and will not mince words when criticism is needed… not a Vandal or a Wanderer as the name seems to suggest.
