Thank You, Coe Booth!

Here's a big THANK YOU to the amazing Coe Booth for joining us at readergirlz this month! Things we learned about Coe include:

1. She never outlines--she wings it and lets the story take her where it wants to go!
2. At first, Coe didn't think writing was a career. "I thought people just wrote books for fun," she says. "So I went to school and got a master's degree in psychology!"
3. She gets feedback from her writer friends, The Longstockings!

We had so much fun this month!
