I met and spoke with a famous author quite by chance today. She was getting ready to give some workshops on writing family history books , in our library, and Acerules and I just happened to be in there, Ace, in her school uniform, was doing homework, I hope, as I could only see the back of the laptop . I was researching for my books quietly, looking up obscure country pubs.
She spoke with Ace and I personally.
Her name is Hazel Edwards. She's written best selling books, won an Order of Australia Medal for Literature, 200 published books, in 10 languages, and she was giving me writing advice, me! She was attractive, colourfully and prettily dressed, warm, friendly and giving of her experience. I'm not sure I believe it really happened. I got to shake her hand!
Have you ever met a famous person? Felt starstruck?
