I got to meet Michael Grant, the author of the popular Gone series not too long ago on May 15. I was super excited to see him because we both used to write for Stupid Blog Name. And of course, I rarely pass up the opportunity to go to book signings (at least as of now). They're so fun!
After meeting some friends for lunch, I headed over to get a good spot at Barnes & Noble. Even though I was practically an hour early, the first two rows were already filled. Apparently, there are much bigger Gone and Michael Grant fans than me. I chatted with the other YA enthusiasts and learned about a couple of other upcoming book signings that I'm interested in.
Then some fun Q&A. I asked him what promped him to start writing. His answer: his wife made him.
