Excerpt from Mable’s book Because we are friends
Mabel encourages authors to join writers clubs as she tells every one, writers need writers. We keep each other enthusiastic about our work. Plus we learn from each other. In addition to the Phoenix Writers Club, she belongs to the Arizona Authors Association and the Society of Southwestern Authors. Though she can not always attend the meetings, the newsletters of each club are full of useful info. She served as president of the PWC for six years. She felt especially fortunate in 2006 when the club celebrated their 80th Anniversary. In honor of that achievement, the club used Mabel’s idea of a “chain story” with each chapter written by another author. The result was “The Wall”; a children’s story book
