KK & me

Decided to come out of hiding and actually intro myself to novelist Karen Kingsbury. So glad I did, because she was warm and helpful to this newbie writer. After I gushed a little, she patiently answered my probing questions and signed a fresh-off-the-press copy of Between Sundays. And before that, she entertained the crowd with stories about her writing life, her family, and the recent Hannah Montana concert she and her son, Tyler, attended. LOL, my maternal respect o'meter shot up at that point.

Before the event, my hub, Dan, Teen Daughter, Elementary Girl and I stopped by Casa Cushman for pizza and cookies, then followed Katie & her youngest over to Border's. I think I can safely say that Katie (as in Kathryn Cushman) gushed at least as much as I did, only she did it in an elegant sort-of way :)

I'm sure you are elegant too. I love the photo!

Love the look and feel of your blog. It makes me miss the beach!

Kathryn Cushman said...

Ha! There was nothing elegant about my gushing. I've been thinking of what I should have in place of the idiotic things I did say! Oh well.
Extra special thanks to teen daughter Carobini for watching elementary daughter Cushman during the signing!
