Who happens to be a writer

To the world of literature she may be a writer who happens to be a mother, but to three children she is Mother, a warm, exciting woman who happens to be a writer. And to her husband, even after seventeen years, she is still the most fascinating, most exasperating, most stimulating, most outrageous, the most understanding and the most fantastic wife he has ever had.
From a 1963 article in Horn book Magazine written by Hugh Franklin (who died in 1986) about his wife Madeleine L'Engle (who died Saturday). Read the rest here. (Big hat tip to Susan.)
