Kathy (K.D.) Wentworth (1951-2012)

Kathy Wentworth died Wednesday, April 18 of cancer complicated pneumonia.  Besides being an accomplished author, Kathy was also a coordinating judge for Writers of the Future and taught the yearly workshop for contest winners.  Kathy has indirectly helped launch the careers of countless authors simply by choosing 6 – 8 stories every four months out of the thousand or so received every quarter.  She was a lovely, kind person, who will be missed.  She, above, most, had followed Heinlein’s directive to “Pay it Forward.”
