It really came together like a dream. Everything I had hoped for, everything I wanted to know and the details I needed to put into my story all became a reality for me on November 7, 2014.
I made the trip to Long Island, NY and met a friend from Twitter. We went to the concert together and had the time of our lives! Inspired by Jimmy Wayne to keep a small writing journal with me to jot down names and details for my book, I did just that. I told everyone I met that I was writing a book and that this concert was a scene in the story. How quickly did people give me their names and asked to be in it. I assure you all, I will indeed write you in, even though it is only fiction, so much is based on real life experiences.
Starting a new writing journal was fun enough for me, but when I actually had the opportunity to meet the singer, Jesse Kinch, I asked him to sign the inside cover. This is now one of my most treasured possessions as a writer. An autographed writing journal by the inspiration of the main character in my first book, words cannot clearly convey my heart's joy.
