I’m feeling very fortunate. As a retired librarian in the great state of Texas, I have attended the Texas Library Association Conference and met many wonderful, talented authors. Among those are Harlan Coben, Sujata Massey, Lisa Scottoline, Marsha Clark, and too many more to list. I keep reading lists that include Rick Riordan and want to say that I attended an author dinner one year where the authors actually moved from table to table. Rick Riordan was one of the authors and I was able to speak to him then, one-on-one. And yes, he is delightful and articulate! This was before he began writing books for children. If you haven’t read his adult books, start out with Big Red Tequila, my personal favorite.

I’m adding author Kristen Proby to my list. She was at the TLA Conference in April, 2016.
