Tab Defarge | 1183 comments I've went to a Gordon Korman thing several years back where I got a signed copy of Swindle. I almost saw Margaret Peterson Haddix but didn't.

I am so jealous Charlie. You didn't even take me to go see Veronica Roth! *glares* (JK!)

I have met zero authors. Or famous people in general. If I got to meet any author in the world it would be Suzanne Collins, Veronica Roth, or Margaret Peterson Haddix.

I'm sorry *puppy face*
If I met some of my most favoritest current authors, I think I'd fall over dead right then and then.

It's okay Charlie. I still wuv you! *hugs*

Who are your favorite current authors? I would have to agree, if I met Suzanne Collins or Veronica Roth, I think I would stop breathing.

I would pass out (not die, but probably pass out...dying is a bit dramatic :D) if I met:
Suzanne Collins
Richard Peck
Tim Tebow (yes, he wrote a book, so technically, he's an author)

Or better yet, have them critique my writing. (And play football with Tim Tebow! :D) There are more, I'm sure, but I can't think of them right now.


Ice Queen Wanderer •The Cursed Prophetess• (Ari-la) | 128 comments I'd die if I met:

Johns I'd die if I met James Patterson, Rick Roirdan, Suzanne Collins, Cate Teirnan, or Veronica Roth. But especially James Patterson.

But I have met Mary Downing Haun and Alane Fergasun at a book signing and they were all awesome!!! And Roland Smith, the guy who wrote I.Q. Thank goodness for Children's Literature Fest!

And Vivian Vanda Vilde.... She writes All Hallows Eve, Witch Dreams, and something else...

I WAS GONN MEET VERONICA ROTH BUT MY MOM WOULDN'T TAKE ME!!!!!

Sarah (Sarah1324) | 1078 comments Mod
Grrr.... I am so jealous of all of you. I have met zero authors in my life.
-_-

Here is my official list of authors I want to meet.
Suzanne Collins
Veronica Roth
Margaret Peterson Haddix
Rick Riordan
James Patterson

Charlie if you are planning on meeting any of those authors you must take me in case you die so I can save you with virtual CPR. But I might die if we met Suzanne Collins. Then we'd be in trouble.....

Finley Mac | 172 comments Also, I've been to an annual children's literature breakfast twice because my mom and stepdad are illustrators and I have seen quite a few authors speak, but I haven't really talked with them.

My sister has three poems published...so does she become an author too?


message 30: by Jane (new)

Jane (SmallinaBigWorld) I've met no one famous, or authors, unless you count me, my dad, and my teacher, whom are authors, well the latter two are, I want to be. The only other famous people I have met are my uncle and my cousin who sing with Sweet Deliverence(Acapella group). My dad is friends with doug tanaple (he made cat scratch the show and does comic books)... I think thats it.

message 39: by [deleted user] (new)

I once came across Stephen King in ABQ. When I went to get something for his autograph he ran off!! He wasn't as tall as I thought. Be prepared if you run across a celebrity!


message 40: by johanna (last edited Mar 20, 2013 05:17PM) (new)

johanna (johannad_m) I've never actually ... met any authors. Not published authors, anyway. I have, however, conversed with Donita K Paul [Author of DragonSpell) and (quite a bit) with Jill Marshall [Author of the Jane Blonde series] over the phone or by email. And I'll probably be meeting Michael Morpurgo sometime.

Reannan | 21 comments I know my parents got me a ticket for chirstmas a few years ago when I was in hospital for a year funny enough the day after I went to the book signing I was let out of the hospital and have not been back. I find it lucky.

You were sick for a year? :O

message 48: by Reannan (new)

Reannan | 21 comments Yes I got really sick and they didn't know what was wrong with me it is a lifetime condition so I was in and out of hospital for a year they thought I would die at one point but I came through and I am good now.
