Giddy as a School Girl

I have never been a groupie. Well, okay. Maybe, for a minute in college, I may have been a groupie. The unknown band was really good. Filled with skilled musicians. Fine. Fine. The lead singer was dreamy. But I quickly came to my senses and went on my merry way.

So, like I said before, I’ve never really been a groupie. Mindless devotion. Seeking emotional connections where none lie or (aahem) sexual intimacy were non should exist. Fame hounding through affiliation. All not my thing!

But if I were to ever become a groupie, Harlan Coben, I would be yours! In a strictly non-sexual, stalking, or otherwise threatening way!

A year and a half ago my Auntie Rose turned me onto your work (late bloomer, I know) and I was hooked. I was first struck by the culture and character with which you write. A sentence in your book is not a mere sentence, but a living glimpse into the world you’ve created. And hey, don’t get me started on hooks and plot twists.

Your writing entertains me, but better it inspires me to improve my own.

And in honor of your fabulousness, I must tell all who read my blog (Mom, Aunts, Writer Friends). I’m giddy as a school girl because I’m about to crack open Harlan Coben’s new release STAY CLOSE!!

  1. Na na na boo boo, Megan, because I am going to see/hear Harlan Coben at the Toronto Reference Library this month! The old broad attached to his ankle and dragging like a ball and chain? Yeah. That will be me.

  2. I. Am. So. Jealous! Oh, can you hug him for me? Just kidding!

    I am really happy for you. Just don’t get arrested with the whole ball and chain scene. I can’t lose one of my new writer friends to the slammer. But hey, think of the stories you could tell after that experience. It might be worth it. I’ll let you decide.

    Safe travels!
    Jealous Megan

  3. So excited for you! I am still picking up some of his older books that I have not read before I read his latest.

    So what I need to know is did you buy it? Hehe!

    Love you! Auntie Rose

    • I did. I could have asked the library to get it, but I couldn’t stand to wait.

      I found some of his first books in an antique, a.k.a. junk store, for a buck each and scooped them up. I’m so cheep! 🙂
