“She was a damn fine friend, as well as an accomplished author,” said writer Lenora Good.
Neason will be remembered throughout the science fiction and fantasy community as a woman who generously gave of her time to encourage both new and established writers. She was a regular panelist at conventions in the Pacific Northwest.
