My writing buddy, Peggy the pen master, and I trekked it over to the American Fork Costco on Saturday to talk with the newest New York Times bestselling author: Becca Fitzpatrick. I picked up her book at 12:30 with the intention of reading just a few chapters. HELLO, I was wrong. At 4:00 in the morning I finished the fast-paced, thriller/romance. Of course when I heard she was going to be at Costco, I had to meet her. Here's why:
1. She was totally down to earth and not at all freaked out by my overly-excited hug.
2. She looked very authorly. Which then I got to thinking . . . If I changed out my housewife, frazzled mom look, and started wearing knit tops and cardigans, would I write better?
3. Can I just say, GREAT HAIR! Dang, I would love to have her locks.
4. Her book grabs you from the get-go. Really. From the first page, I couldn't put it down. And now that I've purchased it, and had her sign it, Hush Hush has just been placed on my "Do Not Touch" shelf. Which means, Sorry, ya'll can't borrow it. Or touch it.
