Book Blogger Hop: Dying To Meet

”BookBook Blogger Hop

Jen at Crazy For Books is taking a break this week, so the hop is being hosted by Lori's Reading Corner.  This week's question is: Who is the ONE author that you are DYING to meet?

There are several authors I'd love to meet.  Among them are C. J. Cherryh, Orson Scott Card, and Jacqueline Carey.  However, the one author I want to meet more than any of the others, is Laurell K. Hamilton. 

I've been a fan since my ex-husband introduced me to Hamilton's Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series years ago.  I read her blog, follow her on Twitter, and I'm at the book store to purchase the latest novel within 24 hours of every release date.  Laurell K. has inspired me, not just in my writing, but in my personal life.  I love her voice as a writer and I aspire to be half as successful as she is someday. 

Though LKH has blogged multiple times on her writing process, I always get the feeling she's oversimplifying for novice writers.  Although I'm not a New York Times bestselling author, I'm not a novice either.  I'd love the opportunity to talk shop with her.  (I also want to know if her husband, Jon, went to my highschool or a different school with the same name.)

  1. Wow! Every answer I’ve read is a great one. Some have been surprising, too.

    The one author I have to meet before I die? Tricky question! It took me a long time – much longer than usual – to come up with an answer.

    Who’s that author I’m dying to meet?

    Hop this way to find out my roguish answer –

    Howard A. Sherman, Implementor

  2. A new author for me. So many interesting choices coming up on the hop

  3. I haven't read Hamilton's book but I have one sitting on my bookshelf. Perhaps I should read it now...

    My hop:

  4. Interesting choices you have! I've seen Hamilton's books in the library but never had the courage to try her. Maybe I will :)
