Every Saturday I share some questions I receive from readers, bloggers and writers. Today’s question is:
What is your fondest memory about being a published writer?
My fondest memory is the first time a reader gave me feedback on my work. The reader waited in line at a book signing to tell me how much she enjoyed my books. She spoke so eloquently about how much pleasure my stories brought her.
I wish I could say that I was eloquent in response, but I wasn’t prepared for something like this. Instead my jaw dropped, I blushed bright red, and my throat kind of made this strangling, gurgling sound. Despite all that, it was my fondest memory because I know how the reader felt. Everything she said was what I had experienced when I read my first romance. At that moment (after I stopped geeking) I felt like I came full circle.
