Have you ever written an author a fan letter?
Did you get an answer?
Did it spark a conversation? A meeting?
Yes, I wrote Jon Hassler (one of my all-time favorite authors) a fan letter-via email.
Yes, I got an answer from him, right away. I thought that was wonderful, since he is #1 a famous author and #2 suffers from Parkinsons. I printed it out and kept it.
The only conversation it sparked was in my book club, where everyone oooooh'ed and aaaaaah'ed over the note. Green with envy, they were, they were!
Oh, and PS: I've also written to Bill Luse, who is an author as well. And I am happy to say he wrote me back. So, I've written to TWO authors! Go me!
