Will Shetterly and Emma Bull

Will Shetterly was kind enough to give me a welcome mention in his blog, It's All One Thing. Both Will and his wife Emma Bull are science fiction and fantasy writers. I was entranced by the attitude toward music demonstrated by Emma's protagonist in her novel War for the Oaks (which I had devoured whole on a transcontinental flight), and dropped her a note via the old GEnie network. She and Will and I have been pen pals and mutual fans ever since. They're two fine writers, escaped from LA and newly settled in the Tucson area. Good luck to you with those screenplays, guys.
