Vale: K.D. Wentworth.

K.D. Wentworth has passed after a battle with cancer.

I've been entering the Writers of the Future contest for a couple of years now. As the co-ordinating judge, K.D. was someone I felt a connection to. She read my stories, even liked some of them. More than that, she started out where I am - as a teacher who submitted stories to the contest until she won. I never met her, but I've spoken to people who have, other writers who have won the competition and spent a week at the workshops with K.D. All these people had nothing but complimentary things to say about K.D. - the writer, the judge, the person.

My thoughts are with her family and friends at this time.
