Today I saw my mentor, biographer, Dr. Sally Cline. She approved my final chapters and it looks very much as if my memoir is almost completed.
Sally is a brilliant mentor and I have learned so much from her. She is a born teacher and mistress of her craft. I always come away from our meetings with fresh motivation and insight.
Sally’s own books are beautifully written, scholarly yet accessible, and have been responsible for keeping me up late at night when I should have been sleeping. Her latest book is ‘Dashiell Hammett – Man of Mystery’ and I read that at a sitting.
‘One of Us is Lying’, her recently published collection of short stories, has an unexpected thread running through them which is both intriguing and satisfying.
I am honoured to be mentored by Sally.
