About the Authors

In 1997, five women met around a kitchen table, talking about writing over lunch. They were writing books about business, poetry, their lives, or their passions.


These women became friends and strong support for each other. Then one asked if she could bring a writer friend to the group—and so did others. Quickly, this small but growing group decided to move to a restaurant. Each visitor brought new life and a new story. Those who cherished the group felt a strong connection and started sharing. Soon you could see the kinship reverberate throughout this new sisterhood.


Such was the modest beginning of our writer's group that eventually became WOW–Women of Words. “Wow” is what we often shout when we hear a great story or a good idea. At monthly meetings, WOW women willingly share their victories—and just as readily share their mistakes, with the belief that we help each other most with our honesty.
