Holiday gifts come in a wide array of forms. This week I was delighted to have a surprise visit from a Kirsten Carlson. Kirsten currently lives on the island of Oahu with her husband, but when I first met her in L.A. at the annual SCBWI conference she was living in Germany. This girl gets around!
Kirsten had just finished a weekend writers retreat hosted by the Andrea Brown Literary Agency in Monterey, when, serendipitously, my December newsletter had arrived in her inbox. As luck would have it, my studio is along the same way that she was traveling to visit more of her friends along the coast. She contacted me through Facebook, we exchanged information, and in a few short hours were having a spectacular studio visit followed by a tasty lunch near the coast!
You can see examples of Kirsten’s work online at her website, or follow her on Twitter and Facebook.
