First of all, congrats! Your interest in doing National Novel Writing Month shows an excitement for writing and storytelling and a willingness to rise to the challenge of writing a whole book in a month!
I have been given a lot of advice. And while a great deal of it has been good (and, naturally, a great deal has been truly terrible as well,) nothing has yet come to claim the crown as these simple words from my grandfather.
It's not every day you get to interview one of your favorite authors! I met Laura over the summer at this year's RWA conference in Orlando, and she was supremely kind, supportive and open. I've learned so much from reading her books and from getting the chance to speak with her, and it's my pleasure to share this interview, so you can get to know Laura too, as she celebrates her latest release, Theirs to Take.
