Amayyyyyyzing . . .
An interview up with me at . . . Meg Cabot's blog!!!!!!!!!!!
THAT was an email request I was thrillllled to get back before the holidays.
If you're not a kid-lit reader, Meg Cabot is the awesome author of many wonderful YA and middle grade books (and adult books too), of which The Princess Diaries series is the best-known, on account of the movies. She has a slew of awesome books, both series and stand-alones -- it blows my mind how prolific she is. She is also fabulously stylish and also funny. We met her -- very briefly, just long enough to stammer, "Excuse me, Ms. Cabot, can we please get our picture with you?" -- back at BEA:
She had just been one of the keynotes (along with Julie Andrews!) at the Children's Literature Breakfast. That. Was fun. (And after, in addition to being behind Meg Cabot on the escalator, I actually washed my hands next to Julie Andrews in the restroom. Ha ha! Brushes with celebrity.
Anyway, I am so thrilled to be at Meg Cabot's blog. Oh, and if you're looking to delve into her bibliography and start reading, Stephanie Perkins created an awesome primer last year with her advice on where to begin. (By the way, Steph is still in Paris, if you can believe it. Still eating pastries and strolling around in her red coat saying "Ooh la la," and carrying baguettes under her arm :-)
Thank you, Meg!
I and four other fabulous local YA authors (all friends) will be at the Beaverton City Library this Wednesday the 27th from 7 to 8:30 pm -- Lisa Schroeder, LK Madigan, Christine Fletcher, and April Henry. We'll talk about writing, and sell and sign books. Hope you can come! Info HERE.
