Sad News About CNYRW Founder Jane O'Connor

I got the news this afternoon that CNY Romance Writers founder Jane O'Connor (pictured in the center of the above photo) passed away. Given that if Jane hadn't had the foresight to found CNYRW in 1988 and gather such dedicated writers together, I wouldn't be published today, this is sad news indeed. Jane is largely responsible for the 55 members and 20+ years of good memories and great books that CNYRW comprises today. She will be missed, and remembered fondly for all her hard work and support, and the gift she gave the CNY Romance Writers. You can read more about Jane O'Connor's Memorial at the CNYRW website.

  1. I never had the pleasure to meet Jane, since I just joined the chapter two years ago. But it felt like home the moment I walked through the door and I know that a large part of that was her legacy and we wouldn't have all come together if it wasn't for her. Thanks for posting this Nicki.
