Congratulations 2013 Writer of the Year Linda Joffe Hull
Linda Joffe Hull joined Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers in 2001 with twenty pages and the naïve assumption that it wouldn’t be all that hard to complete and publish novel length fiction. Overnight success only took one decade, a few shelved manuscripts, and an infinite amount of support from RMFW. Linda is the author of The Big Bang and Eternally 21, the first title in the Mrs. Frugalicious mystery series.
Over the years, Linda has served in a variety of different positions within RMFW including President and Conference Chair and is currently an agent/editor liaison for the Colorado Gold conference. She also serves on the national board of Mystery Writers of America.
A native of St. Louis, Missouri, and a graduate of UCLA, Linda has resided in Denver for the last nineteen years and calls Colorado home.
She is currently at work on Black Thursday, the second Mrs. Frugalicious mystery and a second standalone novel.
2013 Writer of the Year Candidates
Marne Ann Kirk grew up wild, running and exploring the vast high deserts and mountains of Idaho, Montana, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado. She loved making up stories and, well, lied about just about everything. Thankfully, she grew out of the lying stage … now she calls it story-telling.
After writing for over ten years, Marne has had three books published in the last eighteen months. Love Chosen: Book One of The Fae Dragon Chronicles and Love Dared: Book Two of The Fae Dragon Chronicles are the first two books of a fantasy romance series. Goddess on the Run is book one of the Holy Water Warriors’ Tales, a paranormal romance series.
Marne Ann has several amazing kids and now two fantabulous grandsons who rock her world and keep her on her toes. She also has two Shih-Tzus, Thor and Loki, who try to keep her from writing. When she isn’t writing or working, she loves the mountains. Her ideal world, though, would include a few months a year on the beach, preferably in Mexico or Jamaica.
Cindi Myers worked as a newspaper reporter, travel agent and medical clinic manager before turning to writing full time. She’s written both historical and contemporary romance, as well as dozens of short stories and nonfiction articles. Cindi thinks writers have the best job in the world.
Former president of San Antonio Romance Authors, Cindi is also a member of Romance Writers of America and Novelists Inc.
She and her husband and their two dogs live in the mountains Southwest of Denver. When she’s not caught up in creating new characters and stories, Cindi enjoys reading, quilting, gardening, skiing and hiking. She’s also in demand as a speaker, teaching workshops and making presentations to both local and national writing groups.
