"a sublimely silly offering"
"absolutely fabulous fun" -- Midwest Book Review
Years ago, I was invited to a friend's home to meet my first real live author. I went to the library to borrow the author's book, the librarian gave me a concerned look and said, "Oh, I hope you won't be disappointed. Authors are just ordinary people, you know."
I wasn't disappointed, but when I became an author myself, I understood what that librarian meant. Authors are ordinary people who work hard at doing something they love.
When I visit schools, I sometimes worry that my "ordinariness" will be a disappointment.
