Birthday Wishes IV

One more August birthday. Today it's group member Janell Rein. (That's her with her husband, author Walter Rein.) Janell isn't a writer, but I'm betting she could be. She comes to our little group with her husband and has become a very integral member. She is always ready to give wonderful critiques and is very supportive of all our writers, not to mention that she is one of the strongest women I have ever met.

Personally, I have to say that Janell is one of my favorite people. She is so nice and has often been there to give me support and reassurances as "leader" of this group. And I know she is very supportive of Walter, as he is with her. They have been married 51 years now, and they are so perfect, so RIGHT together. If my husband and I have half the love they obviously have for each other, we are off to a great start.

Birthday Wishes III

Well, here we go again. I think our group is really covering August when it comes to birthdays. Today it is author Chrissy K. McVay. (She's going to kill me for using these pictures, but since she has them posted elsewhere on the net, they're fair game. That's Chrissy and her husband Tony above.)

Chrissy is the author of the novel Souls of the North Wind as well as numerous essays and short stories. You can check out her work and latest info at and

Birthday Wishes II

Group members John Pierce and Alessa Leming share a birthday today. John is hard at work on his first novel, and Alessa is a wonderful poet and essayist. They are both names to keep an eye out for in the writing world.
