My First Interview!

Today over at A Chair, A Fireplace & A Tea Cozy, Liz B has an interview with me discussing the first steps in my road to having a book in print!

As she mentions in the interview we have known each other since fourth grade. It's great to have someone you've known for that long. We've been reading each other's stories since then. What she doesn't tell you is that it's because of her that When Mike Kissed Emma got written at all. She was reading a draft of another story I had and she said "Um, Chris, don't kill me, but I think you have a whole story within a story here". She then proceeded to pull out the pages that had that story line, put them all together in one file and show me where I had the complete story arc of an entirely separate story.

Many edits and revisions later it all came together! So Thanks Liz. You can truly say you were there at the beginning!

Hey there! I'm so intrigued by your cover questionnaire! I do Cover Stories on my blog every Monday, and I'd love to include yours at one point. Let me know if you're interested.

Melissa, that sounds great. I'm very interested.

Liz B said...

I have to say, I had almost forgotten that about WMKE -- especially me pulling out the pages. I'm so psyched to see this in book in print!

Liz you were very integral to this story happening. :)

"It's great to have someone you've known for that long." [since the 4th grade] Duh! What about people you've known even longer than Liz?

Christine M said...

Yes, Dad - there are people I've known longer than Liz. But they're not interviewing me, are they? And other than family - there really aren't that many people I've known longer - except for the Pennington Road crew.
