Someone Damn Special

A couple years ago, I had the great good luck of coming across a story in my inbox at my old day job. It was fantastic, however, it wasn't what we published, so I made some suggestions about where she might want to send it, and I offered to take a look at whatever else she wanted to sub.

The short story here is she did and I couldn't be happier. Over the years we've become great friends. She's hilariously funny, amazingly giving and one of the kindest people I've ever met. She's also an awesome, writer, web designer and book trailer creator, tireless mom to three active kids and on top of that, she runs a minimum of eight miles a day and trains for marathons.

Seriously, she's basically Wonder Woman.

Also, it's her birthday, today! So Happy Birthday to my dear friend, Kris Norris a.k.a. Wonder Woman!!! I love you, babe!!!

Any friend of Bronwyn Green is a friend of mine.

Happy birthday, friend!

(I've always wanted to be friends with Wonder Woman. OMG this is so cool....)

Kris Norris said...

Hey Ladies,

Thanks for the well wishes... yup another year older, and I swear I'm feeling it. Those miles get longer and I know someone is lifting the hills and making them higher.

Who would have thought that a rejection letter would lead to an incredible friendship, and a lady who goes above and beyond the call of duty for her friends. I'd be lost without ya, honey...

Thanks for the shout out! You're the best! And since we're revealing our secret identities here, for the record, she's Cat should see her snap that whip!

As for being Wonder Woman... it's pretty cool, though the outfit gets chilly at night! It's also hard to find your invisible plane when you've forgotten where you parked it;)
