Sometimes I'm not sure whether to lead with "she is my editor" before saying "she is my friend," to explain our relationship, but friend is closer to capturing it. Maybe collaborator would be better still.
She helped make MITG much better by virtue of that partnership, and I'll be forever grateful. My hope is that was the beginning of many such projects.
Still, our bond over pozole and music and all sorts of things transcends that. So thank you Linda, for being a most excellent compadre.
