My friend Anne had to film a short documentary on a person of interest. And that person happened to be me. Watch her video about me, highlighting my internship experiences at major publishing houses & literary agency. Also, see me nerd out hard at the Strand.

    This was so neat! And I totally remember those little book sheets that you had to fill out and read X amount of books/pages to win whatever it happened to be at the time. Man, I loved when we would do those.

    You’re probably going to get stuck with the same sister situation I have – I’m 10 years older than my sister, and I used to do these little bookclubs with her, and promise to take her to book-based movies if she reads the book first, etc., and she is JUST NOT A READER. Occasionally I can get her to read something, and very, very rarely will she come home and tell me about something she read in school and liked. It pains me and irritates me that she’s just not a reader, and there’s not much I can do to change that.

    That is such a well put together video (and the subject was fantastic of course)! That is so cool that you were able to intern at so many places and that you want to go into publishing. I am definitely a big reader as well, but think that eventually I would like to go into the writing side of things as opposed to finding and helping the writers….I’m a little short of patience sometimes ;) Keep up the great work though! There are so many awesome books out there and I forget sometimes to be grateful to the publishers and editors and agents who help makes those books possible because they believed in and helped an author. Yay for all the behind the scenes people and yay for great books!

    I would really love to say something meaningful, but right now I’m still astonished. The quality of the video was brilliant and I loved what you had to say! (Btw, my little sister was born when I was 13, too! ;D)

  • Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain, and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong! — I have as much soul as you — and full as much heart!
