Girls Night Out at Little Shop of Stories

I had such a fabulous time hanging out with everyone at Little Shop of Stories in Decatur, Georgia, last weekend! It was a great event that attracted lots of friends and family and local teens.

Author Ginger Rue and I talked about our writing process and inspiration for our books. We were so fortunate to have JUSTINE magazine take part in this event. All the girls got lots of cool freebies, including a copy of JUSTINE and Mary Kay make up samples. One lucky girl even won a backpack filled with $300 worth of books, courtesy of JUSTINE.

Big thanks to the folks at Little Shop of Stories–especially Krista, who took such great care of us that night, and Terra McVoy, the store’s manager and organizer of the night. I also want to thank all the Southern Breezers for stopping in, fellow O.D.s for showing their support and all my family and friends that came.
