Valerie Hendon: On S.G. Baker

By Valerie Hendon

Today she felt was different. She felt as if her big break was right around the corner, with the words racking up in that little head of hers. She just didn’t know how to get them down. Where was she going? The palace of her imagination, of course. Where her mind was free to wonder for the rest of her days!
