About two and a half years ago, I met a frog. The Queen Frog to be exact. She's been my editor since then and in that time, she's demonstrated endless patience and generously shared her expertise and knowledge. What I am today is in large part due to her endless advice and mentoring.
I shall miss working with her. As in all of life, nothing is constant except change. In an internal shuffle at my publisher, I was assigned to another editor. I'm quite certain that I'll get along just fine with my new editor and I'm looking forward to working with her. I'll no doubt learn new things from her as every person we encounter has something different to teach us.
But just before I face the future, I want to say a heartfelt thank you to the Queen. She's on vacation at the moment. I sincerely hope she's stretched out on her lily pad enjoying the catering of some handsome young male froglets. She deserves every bit of pampering that comes her way!
