Now, for my brush with Kristan Higgins. I was at a conference and a young woman won an award. She was sitting not too far from me and her excitement bubbled into the air. I didn't have a clue who she was.
I took a photo while she was posing for someone else because she had that award and she was sparking the air with her happiness.
A few years later I went to a huge writing conference and she was the keynote speaker.
I read her book because someone at the conference said, "You have to read her writing." I did. And became a fan.
Back at home, I was looking through my photos and saw the face which was now famous to me. I had a real photo of Kristan Higgins before I even knew who she was.
If you're not already a fan of hers, and you read romance novels, buy her book, Too Good to be True." Read it on a day when you're not in a good mood and the world is doin' ya dirty. Lock yourself away from the world and start turning the pages. It can lift your spirits.
