I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Sybil’s Garage is a group effort.  Several people work really hard behind the scenes to make each issue happen.  This is the first of a series of posts where I intend to highlight the contributions of each editor.  I’ve asked each person to talk a little bit about his/her experience working for Sybil’s Garage. Our first editor is Mercurio D. Rivera.  When Mercurio joined our writers group a few years back, I never thought this humble quiet fellow would soon become one …
