A Website and blog! Nicely done. Now I have a place to tell my favorite Ruth story, which is this: Carol O'Dell, Ruth's friend and a friend of mine, introduced me to Ruth in 2007 when I asked Carol some questions about the Florida First Coast Writers' Festival's playwriting contest. I'd just had a story published that I thought might be turned into a play, but I'd never done a play, let alone enter one in a contest. Clearly, I needed more than the scriptwritng books I'd been trying to make sense out of. "Talk to Ruth Chambers," Carol said. "She's been there, done that, and is entering again this year." So, Carol talked to Ruth, whom I then called. Ruth, gracious, funny, generous, and knowledgeable, told me this, told me that, told me everything and more about writing plays, the contest, the judges, and much else--which was outstandingly generous because I was going to compete with her and, for all she knew, might edge her out. (Not surprisingly, and much to my relief, that didn't happen: she placed first and I was second.) We finally met at the awards luncheon and she was as funny and gracious as she'd been by e-mail and telephone. We've been friends since, and I've had a chance to read some of her her very exceptional, talented work. She deserves and success she may have, and more.

Your website is so clean (unlike so many others) and very attractively laid out. I didn't see anything on there about your short fiction and where you've published. I know you have more contributions to add to your list -- including you Chicken Soup... publications! - Your devoted fan, Kathy

Your website is great. Carlene

I like it very much!
