    Pam (respa): I am so honored to get this recognition. I am left speechless by it, and that doesn't happen often. I don't think we ever do things by ourselves on Fan Story. It takes the writer, but it also takes reviewers who appreciate what you do.

    I am especially honored to be recognized for my love of nature, and how I choose to present it. It is a subject dear to me, and to be recognized for it and the works I share about it is so meaningful. Thank you.
