From a former classmate

Kathy Valentino, with whom I took two Gayle Brandeis writing courses, is a lovely personality. A Canada-US dual citizen, she splits time between Los Angeles and Tucson.

Recently she took part in the NOH8 campaign to fight homophobia. I am glad to call her an ally.

Hoping to see progress on her novel in progress, which dealt with an aspiring actress, Dee, in early 1980s Hollywood and weaves the AIDS epidemic into the storyline. I hope to sit down with her for a novel brainstorming/writing session together, considering that we've known each other for five years now, and have some basic ideas about each other's work.
