One of my life and literary idols . . .

is without a doubt, Jeannette Walls. K has even had the opportunity to meet and speak with her. I treat my personalized, signed copy of HALF-BROKE HORSES as if it's gold. It is to me.

There's a wonderful article about Jeanette in the NYT. Even cooler? We share a pub date! Her first novel, THE SILVER STAR, hits shelves the same day as FAMOUS on June 11th. :)

Here's an excerpt from the interview:

"That’s why I can’t be bitter or angry, because I got the damn castle, didn’t I? And he and my mother gave me the tools to do it. I’ve got four flush toilets in this house, O.K.? Push the little lever, life is good. I got heat, push the little buttons, life is really good. I will never take anything for granted."

--Jeannette Walls

I already have the novel on pre-order and cannot wait to read it!

The quiz is now up on the Canterwood Crest Website! I think it's fun and cute. :)

Totally random, but I'm getting SUPER excited about the Twilight movie. Crazy excited. Like maybe I should read Twilight for the third time excited. I can't wait.

This weekend, I'm going to be a hermit and stay in. I'll be writing non-stop and getting that word count meter bar moving.

All set!

Apologies about the difficulties with downloading the video! The awesome Jo at Glass Slipper Webdesign walked me through it and everything is all set!

If' you've already downloaded the video, please try to download it again--it won't charge you.
