Barnes & Noble, Maple Grove, with Steve Thayer, Angela Halgrimson and Susan Jensen (l-r).
Yes, we are holding each other's books, though Steve also writes mystery/thrillers, so Ithaca Falls and Whispering Minds might be somewhat interchangeable...with the exception that Steve is a seasoned author with thirty years under his pen and a handful of awards for his incredible writing!
Me, I just basked in the glow of his greatness while loving on Angela's amazingly beautiful picture book of Lenny the Crow. Seriously, the artwork between the covers is truly inspiring. And last, but not least, was the great grad gift idea from Susan. Her survival guide for girls comes from her own experiences as a fitness trainer and health coach. In my daughter's words, "Mom, she's really pretty."
Yeah, pretty and pretty cool.
If you ever get the chance to attend an author event, I encourage you to do so. Don't be afraid to approach the tables, ask questions, finger the books and take pictures. You never know what or who you might find!
