Small Crimes: Sandra Seamans and Friday Reads

Sandra Seamans, short story writer and blogger, has died. Her blog, My Little Corner, was instrumental in making whatever I do here at Unlawful Acts successful. As I wrote here in October 2018, “f you are a writer this is the blog [My Little Corner] you need to be reading!” Or back in May 2018, “As always you should be reading My Little Corner . . .”

I never had the pleasure of meeting Sandra in person and our contact was only a stray blog comment here and there, but Sandra will be greatly missed. Patti Abbott wrote, “Sandra Seamans served the writing community selflessly . . .”

Steve Weddle pointed us to an interview he did with Sandra back in July 2012 and Do Some Damage published Albert Tucher’s “Remembering Sandra Seamans” last night.

I briefly thought out writing a separate post regarding Sandra’s importance, but I figured adding my remembrance of her in my daily links would be something she’d appreciate.
