The day after a long-awaited lunch with my dear friend, Donna Cronk, I received copy of her latest blog post. Donna is the most gifted essayist I know, and the notion that she would devote an entire blog about me is a genuine honor that leaves me rather speechless. Her kind words almost make cry. Thank you, Donna! I love it ... and you. You are a gem!
CATCHING UP WITH JANIS . . . IF I CAN
BY DONNA CRONK
It was only fitting that I met up with my friend and writing colleague Janis Thornton of Tipton yesterday on "Spring Forward Day."
There's no writer I know with more energy, drive and spring in her step than Janis. She is inspirational.
Not only does she have a day job, she is a prolific author on her own time with a love for research. She has written a number of books, including her 2018 “Too Good a Girl: Remembering Olene Emberton and the Mystery of Her Death,” relating to the still-unsolved death of her high school classmate.
Donna, on the left, and lookey! We have the same hairdo!
