SPOTLIGHT on Bobbie Cole

This author is an inspiration to us all. Her achievements are many and her love for the written word is evident in all the work she produces. I admire her and cherish her guidance. She is the driving force behind many writers, me included. Below is a Thanksgiving note from her, please take a few minutes to get to know Bobbie Cole (Sunny to all those that love her). Don’t forget to check out her work!

Thanksgiving Letter

My Wake-Up Call

My thanks to agent Ruth Cohen eons ago for my first rejection letter when I submitted ALL the mistakes a beginner possibly could. 146, single-spaced pages, football hero, sex by page 43, with a copyright since my writing partner and I were positive someone would steal that wonderful schlock.

Ruth kindly praised our writing but suggested we read a few romances or consider writing mystery, and she asked if either of us had recently gone through a divorce (we both had), because, as she put it…Your hero is a bastard.

That was about 60 short stories and 50 books ago. God bless the Ruth Cohens and Kate Duffys of the publishing industry. I owe them big time! And my thanks to friend Liz, who got me off my butt and proved that a book–albeit a bad one– could be written in two days.
