  • Mood:


One of my dad's former students and a family friend is Marti Leimbach. She has been a successful novelist since the MFA program, with one of those kaboom debuts. Her first novel was Dying Young, which was not only a very good book but was made into a movie, causing fame and money, etc. (The book is way better than the movie for anyone who only knows the latter.)

Looks like she's going to make another big dent with her newest, Daniel Isn't Talking. It's really great to see Dad's friends and students doing so well. Thirteen years after his death, you can see the effect of teaching and mentoring continue.
