"Guess Who?" Q&A Week 15

This contest is closed

Can you please share one memorable moment that has happened to you since becoming an author?

I don't know if this was embarrassing or just plain stupid, but it sure was a memorable moment. When my first "controversial" YA novel came out, I was doing my very first booksigning and this high school librarian stopped by my table, picked up the book, read the blurb on back, and threw the book down on the table. She said, "No student in my school would be caught dead reading this book."

I was like, Geez. Actually, I almost burst into tears. Later, I felt more sorry for the students in her school than I did for myself. Imagine all the great literature they were missing.

Hints: Luna, by the time you read this, I'll be dead. I mean define "Normal" anyway. Keeping you a secret is far from xanadu.
