Ludima Gus Burton

I first met Ludima at Romance Writers of America National conference in Washington, D.C. We were both waiting for agent appointments.

Ludima got her first writing rejection when she was 71; I got mine at 12. But we both were still trying.

I met Ludima again last weekend at New Jersey Romance Writers conference. In her eighties, she's still writing and publishing - and still smiling.

She's a perfect role model for me as I keep writing and looking for an agent - at the youthful age of 60.
