The Arkansas writing community lost a mentor and a friend on October 9, 2023.

Velda Brotherton (1 February 1936—9 March 2023) will not write another book, but she has left us more than 40 to remember her by.

More importantly, she has left us memories of a gracious, caring friend and mentor.  In addition to a demanding schedule of writing and workshop presentations, she always found time to help individual writers with advice and practical help.

You can find a list of Velda’s books at Goodreads.

Here is her obituary.
