“Who is the ONE author that you are DYING to meet?"
I am dismayed at having to choose only one author to meet. There are so many whom I admire, like Stephen King, Agatha Christie, Michael Crichton, Danielle Steel (she's a writing machine, raised a lot of children, and wrote at night while they slept!), Marguerite Henry, Charlotte Bronte, and many more. For some I would need a time travel machine to accomplish the task, so that's out of the question. To narrow it down to one only, I'd have to say J.K. Rowling would be my pick. I have nothing but admiration and respect for this incredibly gifted author! I love the rags to riches story, which makes her seem a little more down to earth. I love that she is involved with charity, that she is open and friendly, and what a gift she has given this generation and generations to come! Because of the Harry Potter series, many children have become avid readers, having discovered the magic within a book. She weaves a spell-binding tale, within seven volumes, all of which I have read and re-read. All her Harry Potter books have been made to film, the last of which will be released July 15th! Are you standing in line for the midnight showing? I plan to. So there you have it. The one author I would choose above all others, if given the opportunity to meet, J.K. Rowling.
This reminds me of the Harry Potter Marathon hosted by Giraffe Days I need/want to get started on the first book....again. :)
