Friends, it is with a broken heart that I inform you that we have lost beloved writer, colleague, friend, teacher, and joyful beacon Sandra Moran.
As some of you may know, Sandra was diagnosed with a horrifically aggressive cancer in October. So aggressive that there was nothing that could be done.
According to her dear friend and fellow writer Ann McMan, Sandra passed peacefully last night, November 7th, in the arms of her wife.
We here at Women and Words are absolutely devastated by this loss, as so many of us in her community are. Sandra’s supporters are global, and we all share grief during this time. We are keeping her, her wife, and her family and friends in our thoughts and, as Ann stated so eloquently, we will honor her by going forward in love, joy, and a celebration of the life and literature she cherished.
