"We forget that what matters begins with the imagination." ~ Terry Brooks

So guess what I did last night? I met Terry Brooks!



And yes, I have read ALL of his books. It was so lucky that I got to see him! I happened to go to the bookstore, and saw a sign that said "Meet the Author: Terry Brooks, Sept.11 6:30 pm" then suddenly I realized that it was Sept.11! Of course, this doesn't quite make up for the fact that Diana Gabaldon is touring pretty much every city except Salt Lake City (scratch that, she's also not going to Vegas, since I would have been willing to drive there for her too). But still!!! It was quite exciting, and he even wrote happy birthday to Ray in a book! And of course he signed a book for me too! "Wishing you magical journeys", yep, that's right! Terry Brooks wishes me magical journeys! I wonder how many years of book signings it took him to come up with that phrase . . .?
