Top Ten Authors I Can't Believe I've Actually Met
I'll be the first to admit that I've been pretty darn fortunate when it comes to meeting authors. I've found myself (thanks to being in a profession where authors are occasionally in my path and having a friend willing to drive cross country with me) in the path of quite a few authors. I've even been fortunate to cross off meeting a few of my all-time favorite authors along the way. Here are ten that I can't believe I've actually met...
1) Maggie Stiefvater...twice
...one time at my own library...and she's been in my car
2) Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I maybe might have scared them just a bit by shouting at them and tossing my gnome in their direction, but as you can see by the pic, they were totally cool with it in the end.
3) Sarah Dessen
I drove all the way to Charleston to finally meet her, and then she comes to Indy the next spring. So sweet and nice and wonderful.
4) Sabaa Tahir
An unexpected meeting at Book Con and totally worth waiting in the long line.
5) Morgan Matson
I told her she broke my heart, and she kindly apologized :)
6) Stephanie Perkins
The LONGEST line with the angsty-est of teenagers, but it happened.
7) Libba Bray
I was far more composed the second time around
8) Marissa Meyer
The loveliest of ladies and the loveliest of series
9) Gail Carriger
A sweet moment between Mike and one of my favorites
10) John Green
Mike's first author visit that John strangely remembered seven years later (see post here)
