It was unfortunate that I never knew or met Dreamspinner. I had bought the TwilightRealm web site a year after the domain expired, unaware that anyone had owned it before me, until the day I found the archives of her old site from the Internet Wayback Machine. With some more research, I discovered more of who Dreamspinner was, how she touched so many lives, and how breast cancer had eventually claimed her life. As a dedication and memorial, I restored as much of her old site as I could so that her writings and art may continue to inspire others to follow their own dreams.
