For as long as I can remember, it has been my dream to be a published author. Writers to me are celebrities and their characters are people who I develop intimate relationships. While others admire athletes and models, to me, I have always looked up to writers. Interestingly, the authors who are my idols are not necessarily what people might guess. I’m obsessed with John Green, Stewart O’Nan, Lynda Barry and Jerry Spinelli, and if I had the chance to meet any of them, would probably instantly fangirl and lose my shit…literally. Authors, their books lined up in bookstores or listed on Amazon and eBooks are legit.
