This post is mostly for Sharyn

So, Laurie was gracious enough to mention me in her utterly fantastic Teen Author Lecture speech. She also talked about her editor, among many other people and things. And, well, afterwards, a girl came up to me and said, “I understand that you’re Laurie Halse Anderson’s editor, and I just want to thank you for that, I think that work is really important.”

I smiled and thanked her, because it was easier than explaining, but I figured I should pass the sentiment along to the person it was actually intended for.

Another highlight: one girl in Laurie’s very very long signing line was a fan of Empress.

Both/and, again. Librarian, writer. Simultaneous.

But — I’m not an editor!
