Dear E. Lynn,

May you rest in peace.
Thank you for your pioneering accomplishment of introducing openly gay characters into mainstream literature. I thought it was ironic when I discovered that we share the same editor, you for your last book, Mama Dearest, and me for my first, Stilettos and Steel. I hope to carry your torch.

We shall meet again,
My Best,Jeri Estes
