So long, Dottie

Just a bit ago I heard that one of my writing heroes passed away.

Dorothea Benton Frank, author of Lowcounty, South Carolina stories about family, motherhood, and the beach, passed away this morning after a very brief battle with cancer. If you know me, you know I hate cancer.

I had the distinct privilege of meeting Dottie, as her friends called her, twice. Both times with my own Bacon Tribe – the inspiration for the Grit Girls. In fact, there’s a Grit Girls about meeting our favorite author who is based on Dottie.

The world has lost an amazing writer, and we will miss her stories. Rest well, Dottie. You will be remembered for years and years to come.

Here we are again with Dottie in 2018.
