Recently I had breakfast at the famous Flying Biscuit with my editor, Andrea Doering. It was so good to meet her face to face after communicating through phone calls and emails. Andrea was so easy to talk to and I was glad that we didn't talk about edits or the industry, but spent time talking about our families and later my writing.

It's a special thing when you connect with your editor, not to mention the fact that she enjoys my novels and told me that she always learns something when she reads them. How cool is that? I'll tell you--it makes me want to do my best on the next novel to insure that I find a forgotten but interesting historical piece that will work within my story.

I really appreciate the fact that she took time before her conference in NC to drive down to Marietta to meet me. Breakfast was great and a new frienship was formed that I hope will continue for a long time.
