Archer and Delia take their job as reviewers seriously
A big thank you to Ingrid King my CWA mentor for her advice, support and friendship. I would like to dedicate the Gift Book Medallion to Ingrid and to Ann Boyajian, the talented artist who illustrated Careers for Your Cat and gave the book its soul. Ann is the editor of cattywumpus.
Hat off to Ingrid, editor of The Conscious Cat, and author of Buckley's Story. She won a special award that night, the Hartz Every Day Chewable Vitamin Award, for "The Joys of Adopting the Older Cat." Congratulations Ingrid!
I would also like to give a shout out and thanks to some remarkable people. To Deb Eldredge, who won the CWA Shojai Mentor Award. I would like to add my name to the list of people she mentored. Last year as a newbie to the conference she took me under her wing and made sure I had lunch and dinner companions. She also shared with me some smart advice. That meant the world to me as a new member. To Cindy Read, editor and chief of the Corgi Cryer and Nancy Boyd, an award-winning coach, for their warmth and friendship. It was good to see you both at the conference this year. To Stephanie Harwin, editor of Catsparella and my dear friend and roomie, for her support and adventurous spirit (our specialty is cupcake capers and misplacing our cars.) And to Angie Bailey, editor of Catladyland, for her sweet and unexpected gift. Last but not least I would like to thank Nancy Marano, CWA Contest Chair for organizing the contest, Susan Ewing, CWA President and CWA Vice President, Dusty Rainbolt.
