This is great news!
Our most successful blind editing client is Christine McDonald, author of the powerful autobiography CRY PURPLE, about her 17 years as a street-corner prostitute and drug addict and her recovery from all that. She now lives in St. Charles, MO, but was in Kansas City all during that low period of her life.
However, this post is about something other than her personal life.
For years, Christine has been working to get a harsh Missouri ban lifted: the lifetime ban on food stamps for drug felons.
At long last, her determined efforts have been crowned with success. Here is an article about her and the ban from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
I am very happy for her and for all the people that the lifting of this ban will help. Her success proves the value of perseverance.
Her book, CRY PURPLE, is available in e-book and paperback formats on Amazon and other online buying sites. I edited the book, and my husband, David Dvorkin, designed the striking cover. For details, see: www.dvorkin.com/cmcdonald/
