When people ask me about free lancing, I always say I work for editors, not magazines. If I trust them, I’ll stay forever. When they go, I do too. Etc.

That was my relationship with Val Frankel at Mademoiselle in the ’90s. I even took a contributing editorship there, turning down Cosmo in the process, because Val was the kind of editor who would protect you when the going got crazy.
