Poetry Monday #8 – Fan Girling

This post is dedicated to some awesome authors I met this weekend at Authors In The OC. An event that supports breast cancer awareness and encourages fangirling your favorite authors. Win-Win.

Kim Holden

She was the first author I’ve ever met. Let’s just sit for a moment and contemplate that. ***sigh***

Ok. So, Kim wrote two books that have made my all time fave list. She’s super cool and really nice. Like legit nice. Not fake nice. And her husband is a San Francisco Giants fan!  I should mention that he told me the use of Orange and Black on her books is not associated with the Giants. So,chill out Dodger fans. She’s from Denver.

Read them in this order. You won’t be sorry.


There isn’t much to say about Tarryn Fisher except. READ HER BOOKS.  She taps into that dark place in your soul that you try to pretend isn’t there, but really is and you don’t acknowledge it. That’s where Tarryn lives. She likes to throws parties there in the form of books. I’ve only read two of her books, I don’t know if I can handle another Tarryn book this year. Here  they are.  Read them. I dare you.

I’m posting the first poem I ever read, loved, remembered. It was written in one of my favorite books and then recited by C. Thomas Howell in the movie adaptation. Do you know what it is?

Nothing Gold Can StayI took this pic right out of the book.

“Nothing Gold Can Stay” by Robert Frost

I wrote a nice blog about The Outsiders.

You can read it here.

Thanks for stopping by.  🙂

P. S. (do people even do P.S. anymore?)  I just wanted to say that I really wish I could use emoji in my post.  And to let you know my book is available for pre-order on Amazon!  Order Now!
