Recently I was honored to become a regular member of the blogging team on the Query Tracker forum. The blog was ably managed by Carolyn Kaufman, who passed away suddenly on Saturday. Carolyn organized us, supported our ideas for posts, and cheered us on with humor, grace, and a true sense of fun.
Today Pat McDonald, who runs the QT forum, has posted a moving tribute to his friend. Her passing is a loss to her family, her friends, and an entire community of people who only knew her through her vital and lively online presence. I wish I'd had a chance to know her better.
