WisRWA mourns the passing of long-time member Anna Lee Baier (w/a Ana Leigh). A New York Time and USA Today bestselling author of historical romance, Ana was recently honored with WisRWA’s Lifetime Achievement award. She is remembered for her kindness and warmth, and especially her generosity with new writers just starting their careers. She had the ability to make each person she encountered in WisRWA feel special and important. We will miss her.
