WOMEN OF….WEDNESDAY:

Introducing Some Golden California Ladies!


Some of the Write Sisters were pleased to participate in the creation of the third title in the America’s Notable Women Series. Women of the Golden State: 25 California Women You Should Know is now available.




As in the previous titles, this book features some pretty accomplished women. One ran a successful 4400-acre cattle ranch. Another was the first woman in space.






Some worked to protect the rights of others and the lives of endangered species. They wrote, painted, broke color barriers and glass ceilings.



The writers who provided the profiles of these women are pretty spectacular in their own rights. The children who read this book won’t know that while it was being produced, one writer lost a family member. Another cares for an elderly parent. One has her own physical issues to deal with. Some others handle multiple jobs, family struggles, the poor economy and the general unexpectedness life throws at us. As a publisher, I am indebted to all of them for their contributions.

It’s no accident that I decided to use the subtitle “America’s Notable Women.” It applies to both the contents and those that provide it.

You know, Mur, if you keep saying things like that, we're gonna have to stop calling you EE.

Wow, Barb, you're right! We'll have to call her the WFE (warm, fuzzy editor)

WFE...Why do visions of Gorgeous George and other pro wrestlers of my youth suddenly come to mind?

Congratulations to you, WFE, on yet another notable achievement. We'll have to include your profile in the next installment of Women of Granite.
