I love Twitter. I especially love the how I can “chat” with some of my favorite authors. I’m a total fan girl and secretly *squee* inside (or not so secretly) when I get to Tweet with any one of them.
Recently, I was made aware of an opportunity that would allow me to actually meet one of my favorite authors. I’m not sure if it’s going to happen, but it got me thinking about which of these authors I’d love to meet and what we’d do together. Of course, my list was about a dozen women long, so for the sake of this post, I’ve narrowed down to four authors. And now I feel like like Ross from that episode of friends when he takes Isabella Rossellini off his “list.”
The first author I’d love to meet and hang out with is Ms. Nalini Singh. Her Psy/Changling series is in my Top 5 favorites of all time. It was the second paranormal romance series I read and I’ve re-read a few times! When I first was reading her books, I had some questions about the characters, so I emailed her. And to my surprise, she responded right away. It was so cool that a famous, busy author would take the time to write back. I want to get together for brunch or tea and discuss her travels. From her blog, it looks like she has had some amazing adventures.
Another author I’d love to meet is Ms. Lara Adrian. She was my first author “tweep,” and she gave me a #Follow Friday when I first started twitter. Her Midnight Breeds series is an auto-buy for me and it’s hot and exciting. The fun thing is that she only lives a couple hours from me! I would love to get together with her for lunch to discuss our home state. What are her favorite restaurants, where does she like to visit, what has she done since she moved here, what brought her here…
Next up is the always entertaining Ms. Larissa Ione. First of all: who wouldn’t want to meet the person who imagines such amazing males such as Shade and Wraith…. and by amazing I mean *super hot*! We have lots of fun on twitter and I would love to get together with her for dinner and a couple drinks. I remember reading that she got some of her inspiration for the Demonica Series while watching Angel. I am a huge Buffy and Angel fan and I think that is so cool. I would love to discuss where she gets her ideas, what else she imagines for her fictional world and maybe get a couple of spoilers! I would also like to learn more about her love of animals and what she does to help/protect them.
Finally, I would love to meet Ms. Meljean Brook. Those who’ve read my blog and tweet with me know that I adore her Guardian Series. Demon Moon is one of my all-time favorite books. I also have chatted a bit with her on twitter. Her blog posts are hilarious (I still laugh over her book p0rn post!) She currently resides in the Portland, OR area. I used to live in Seattle and I miss it dearly. I would love to get together on the West Coast for a cup of coffee (tea for me) and some seafood. I would love to hear her stories, how she got to where she’s at, what she’s up to. I think I would laugh a lot.
Oh, so many great women writers out there… I think I may have to make this a serial post and add in more at a later date. So, who would you love to meet? Who have you met already?
