"Guess Who?" Q&A Week 30

This weeks Q&A will end Saturday November 12, 2011 @ midnight CST

Can you please share one memorable moment since becoming an author?

The first time an author meets her editor is an exciting time! I flew up to NYC with one of my cutest outfits, all ready and excited and nervous to make a good impression. Our meeting was scheduled in the afternoon, so I spent the morning book-shopping. Well, I was lugging around a lot of books, so I hurt my shoulders. Then, I got a blister from a shoe that was comfortable back home, but NOT ready for NYC. Then, to top it all off, it started to pour rain and I got soaked. But my hotel was really close to my publisher's building, and the rain had let up. Was I going to spend my hard-earned book and food money on a TAXI?

Foolishly, I was not. I packed a bag with stuff I needed to take and set off, but somehow the walk to the building suddenly seemed ENDLESS. By the time I got there, I was fidgeting with my bag on aching shoulders, limping from my shoes (my foot was, by this time, bleeding), and rather damp from the light rain that somehow added up on my hair as I went. My editor's reaction was more "Oh dear" than "Nice to meet you!"

Luckily, she had band-aids in her office, and we made it to dinner. =)

Hints: She sketches her characters.
