Throwback Thursday – An Editor Meets the Original Avon Lady

Authors have always been an important part of my life, but when I was growing up, I could never have imagined I would actually meet one, much less actually work with many authors of all types. But the original Avon Lady of 1972 was actually the first Avon Book I read: The Flame and the Flower by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss . I first “met” Kathleen E.  Woodiwiss in my mother’s discard pile. Although not a big reader (and never one to save books in a library), my mom was always an enabler. When I was little, I was allowed to get one Little Golden Book at the grocery store every week, and when I had pneumonia, my mom brought home Laura Ingalls Wilder’s “Little House” Books from the library. Later she found me the Children’s Readers Digest version of Jane Eyre, which was only the first of several times I read it,…
