Recently, RMFW started recognizing its Honored Guiding Members and this time on the podcast we’ve got the 2018 honoree, Janet Fogg.

Janet joined RMFW in 1993 after placing third in the Colorado Gold contest.

Rising early every day to write before heading off to her day job as CFO and Managing Principal of an architecture firm, Janet wrote four manuscripts before receiving a contract for her first traditionally published novel, Soliloquy, a HOLT Medallion Award of Merit winner.

After 29 years she resigned from the firm and now splits her working days between writing and serving on the Board of Directors of a different architectural firm.

The writing, as you will hear on the podcast, never stopped.

For RMFW, her volunteer work is impressive. She has judged contest, volunteered at the registration desk, at agent sign-in, as a moderator and instructor, and on the committee reviewing potential workshops.

She regularly contributed to RMFW's blog, has chaired Writer of the Year and Independent Writer of the Year nomination committees, created guidelines for a potential, future RMFW Mentor Program, and has served on the Board of Directors as Published Author Liaison and more recently, as Vice-President.

Last year, she assumed primary responsibility for RMFW's "It's a Book" promotional mailer.

No question about it, Janet Fogg is certainly a very worthy Honored Guiding Member.
