I love to hear from my readers. But I have to say, it's nervewracking to hear from people I've interviewed to research my story.
If I had a single muse for GIRL OVERBOARD, it was Sam. He spent a ton of time with me--and opened up his life and read the manuscript for technical accuracy. He was the one who told me the difference between passion (he loved to snowboard) and calling (his purpose in life is to help others, not to snowboard fulltime).
Anyway, Sam just emailed this to me: "I want you to know that my mom loved the book and keeps it on one of her coffee tables as a must read for guests!"
How cute is that? Aren't moms great? Aren't MUSES great?
