I mention Cat in here quite often (mostly when she’s made some insightful comment on some grand, sweeping theory of mine), and after another great morning coffee with her, I thought: she needs a shout out!
Cat is my critique partner whether she likes it or not, because I don’t actually function as a writer without her anymore.
She’s the one person I can have a weekly three-hour coffee with, and not have to pretend that anything other than writing (ours, writing in books, writing of tv shows…any and all writing) is of interest.
She knows my characters as well as I do – possibly better, in the way that you can sometimes know other people’s siblings better than they do, because they’re not emotionally obscured.
So thank you Cat for your never-ending generosity and genuine interest. You are a gem!
