INFORMATION

Remembering
Gayle Farmer

Born:
March 25th 1943

Passed into Eternity:
February 2nd 2016

Gayle started on Fan Story in 2005 when she began writing her first novel Secret Lives. She would be the first to say that she had a lot to learn in those days and her friends on Fan Story helped her find the way.

She loved working with this writing community. She made a lot of great friends and she found a few worthy adversaries. She enjoyed the forums and she enjoyed helping other writers iron out the rough spots in their work.

She considered Tom a personal friend and was always grateful to him for creating this unique site where writers could meet, share and grow together.

Gayle was the one true love in her husband Jeff's life and he was hers. She was loved and cherished and she will always be missed.

Gayle was a born again Christian, a follower and faithful believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. She has left this world with all its trouble, pain and sorrow and has joined her Lord in eternity where she will live forever in Joy, Peace and Comfort which is beyond the understanding of those of use still here on earth.

For we know that when this tent we live in - our body here on earth - is torn down, God will have a house in heaven for us to live in, a home he himself has made, which will last forever. 2 Corinthians 5:1

If you would like to read Gayle's novels in their final version, we have made the eBook version free for download on her web site at www.GayleFarmer.com. Go to the pages titled Young Adult Books or Mysteries and Thrillers and download any of three formats of the eBook version.

Thank you for remembering Gayle!

    Cumbrianlass: Posting from the 'future' ensures the post stays on the Profile Comments page longer, so more members get to see the announcement. :D

    Ted T: Hi All :)

    It's a major event for both companies, members and published authors alike.

    I know for a fact that the cast & crew of G&J are people intensive, and that sets them apart and above any other SP/POD publisher I know of.

    Good going guys, see you at the party.

    jjstar: Ditto, Tom. It's been a wonderful adventure.
    February 16, 2013 at 4:06PM
    Showboat: Thanks so much and isn't it cool that such a deserving win goes to Sasha! And of course, to Jen, who managed the whole thing. I'm still unsure of Facebook, and Twitter. Not.

    Again, thanks to you all.

    nor84: I found the survey floating on a banner on the home page. VERY good chance to say what we think. I stressed monitoring the forums to get rid of the clowns and the religious/antireligious rants. I suggestsed letting us repromote and having fans notified. Good Questions. Recommend you catch it.

    Joy Graham: My bad! That's supposed to be Doubletree Kids.

    Showboat: I'm thrilled your grannies are enjoying the stories. They were such fun to write - and to live, lol.
