Last week I found out that a friend, fellow writer and one sixth scale hobbiest has died.
The advent of the internet means we can form long lasting friendships with people we've never met in person. Richard "Dick" Harnett was one of the longest. He was one of the first people to welcome me to the Flickr doll community, and one of the first to support my writing (though he never did care for my taste in subject matter, he did like my style.) We talked each other through photocomics and websites and self-publishing.
He shared resources with me from sites on customizing to Kindle blogs and Bookbub. I sent him to Goodreads and tumblers about women in armour.
Please check out his author page on Amazon. Don't let the Plastic Ladies on the covers fool you, they were his actresses and muses and the stories within are worth the price of admission.
