A wonderful person, a wonderful friend, always in our mind.

I’ve just heard the worst piece of news today, about the passing away of author, Lindsey J Parsons. I never met her, but we’ve been co-members of the writing group: The Alliance of Worldbuilders, as well as Harper Collins online writing site Authonomy.

Over the years, Lindsey and I became very good online friends, and even though we never met in real life, I got the very strong impression that she was a wonderful person, filled with compassion and empathy for others. When my father died last year, she sent me a sympathy card, which I will always cherish. That was the kind of woman she was, and I will miss her, she’s left a void it will be hard to fill.

  4. Still can’t stop crying…but this was a lovely tribute Kate. I’ll do one myself when I’m able, but yes, I think if we can all promote her wonderful books, it may be a way of keeping her legacy alive and helping her family. Just so devastated. I keep wanting to message her to see how she is…:( Bloody awful! 😦

  6. Thanks for the post Kate. It’s always a shock when someone you feel you know even slightly just disappears like that. She has left us her books, but my heart goes out to her family, they can’t be very old.

    • Thanks Jane. I think her children are quite young, and I remember how awful it felt when my mum died, back when I was about 7 or 8 years old. My heart goes out to them too.
