This site is in part dedicated to the late Dale Fetherling, a reporter and editor for 25 years at major metropolitan newspapers, including The Minneapolis Tribune and The Los Angeles Times. Mr. Fetherling then became a collaborator/author of a dozen books. I’ll always be grateful that he took time to mentor me on this craft. Not long before he passed away, he gave me a signed copy of his book, Comrades in Ink, an idea-generating volume of information valuable for both authors and those seeking a writer. Thanks Dale.
