Farewell, Gitte, my inspiration.
I write with great sadness that Australian writer Gitte Christensen has passed away.
It's been about four years that I've been visiting her blog each day. At first I lurked, shy to comment, until eventually I gathered my courage to tell her how inspirational I found her professionalism as a writer, and her determination to make a name for herself in the world of speculative fiction.
Invariably she took the time to reply to me.
I've read many of her stories, and enjoyed each one. Here's a list of some of her publications, and you can read an interview with her here.
I will miss her.
But her stories live on.
Here is a tribute to her from a fellow Australian writer.
