Here I am at a book festival with Catherine Coulter.
Okay, how many people can say they shared a panel discussion with Catherine?
This is an interview with NBC...
This is one of the many interviews I did with Ben at WTKF!
He always jokes that at least ONE person looks good in the photo!
This is Stephanie!
She came to a signing in Myrtle Beach, and then the following year, came to see me in her home state of Ohio. Her mother came with her and said Stephanie was SO inspired by my work!
The following year, I got an email from this man - he'd seen Stephanie's photo on my website and claimed she was a college friend and could I send her his email address? Long story short, they were engaged less than a year later!!!
This is Trish, manager of a Waldenbooks in Chesapeake!!!
She is SUCH a doll! And her hubby, Richard, always comes by to see me as well.
(This past Saturday, I got to go spend a few hours with them, too!)
On Deviant Art, she is YuriPanda - but this is my friend, Lindsay!!!
I was SO thrilled we got to meet in person!
This is Brittany.
She got one of my books in Myrtle Beach, and then her family drove over 100 mils down to Charleston so she could see me there!
This is Linda.
On Deviant Art, she is Granny-Chobit.
Due to health reasons, she's not online often anymore. But she helped me found The Writer's Meow on DA, and she came to see me when I toured through Ohio. AND took me out to eat afterwards. AND had them bring a big cake with a candle that played happy birthday all the way back to North Carolina...
We met on a List-Serv. I answered a question she posted, we exchanged messages, she ordered a book, and then asked me to be a guest on a radio program she co-hosted in Atlanta!
We've met several times now - and she contributed two chapters to my non-fiction book!
No - not Shrek!!!
This photo was taken during one of my Fall Southern Tours. My husband treated me to three days of Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios.
He is my biggest cheerleader. My hero.
And just the other day he told me how proud he was of my efforts and dedication.
That's all I really need to keep going, too. Love you, Baby!
And there's so many more - Trish (p.m. terrell) whom you've all heard me rave about; my friend Denise Sutton; CC (another Chris - so many in my life!); Stephany, a fan so devoted that I nameed a character after her in Book IV; my mom, who cries every time she reads Book II; my DA friends & fans, like MDog02; too many to name!!
Thank you everyone for the incredible journey. And just think - it's not over yet!!!!
So - what's your journey look like???
