Coffee & Fiction

Summer has finally come to NYC and with it, my brain is craving fiction and my body is craving iced coffee. And so, to celebrate summer and receive coffee, I took the Long Island Railroad to Merrick last night, where middle grade author and all-around fab person, Jen Calonita, invited me to speak at the Merrick Library, along with Jenny Han. They have a Summer Beach Bag Book Club – cutest name ever! – and when Jen invited me she said she’d pick me up at the train station with coffee. What coffee do I like?

If Jen hadn’t already had me at Beach Bag Book Club, she had me at coffee.

What a great and fun crowd last night – and so fun to speak alongside Jenny Han, whose P.S. I Still Love You is currently rocking the New York Times bestseller list. Jenny is hilarious and has THE BEST CLOTHES. Not to mention that she showed me tricks for tweeting on the train ride home last night.

And did I mention they had cakes for us with our book titles on them? And homemade brownies.


Some days being an author means staring at a screen and feeling like it’s impossible to create words out of nothing. And sometimes my job is just, well, awesome.
