So I went and saw Shannon Hale, who is my favorite author. It was amazing. I’ve seen her three times now. And she knows who I am. Partly because I have participated in the forum for Shannon Hale fans and commented on her blog some.
I am a fan of Shannon Hale because she is amazing. She write awesome books and is so fun when you meet her. When she signs books, she always has great big long lines, and she spends time talking to everyone. How cool is that?
When I grow up, I would really like to be Shannon Hale, or something very similar. I was talking to my sister yesterday (who went with me–it was funny. When we got up to the signing table, Clarissa, my sister, didn’t say much at all, so when we left, Shannon said, “Goodbye Heather’s shadow.”), and saying how much Shannon had really helped me in my life. I found her books in high school, and she is one of the huge reasons I’ve written as much as I have and I still want to write. She’s amazing.
I need to start reading books again–I’ve sort of been in a book reading slump. I don’t really want to read young adult fantasy, because that’s what I always read. But I don’t know what else to read. I’ll get through it, I’m sure. But any suggestions of books that aren’t young adult fantasy?
