Lemony Snicket
“You write poetry?" Klaus asked.
He had read a lot about poets but had never met one.
"Just a little bit," Isadora said modestly. "I write poems down in this notebook. It's an interest of mine."
"Sappho!" Sunny shrieked, which meant something like, "I'd be very pleased to hear a poem of yours!”
Lemony Snicket, The Austere Academy

Amie Kaufman
“Bravo Sherlock. That's two lollipops I owe you.”
Amie Kaufman
