Another Wednesday. Another game of Name This Author. Let the guessing begin.
Believe it or not, this sweet looking little girl grew up to swim across a crocodile infested river (about fifteen years after this photo was taken). But then she’d pulled a lot of other wild stunts as a youth—including jumping off railroad bridges, diving off cliffs, floating inner-tubes down white-water rapids … and a bunch of other insane stuff that she would never dream of doing nowadays. Some of us do get wiser as we get older … or just more rational. However, it might be that some of those crazy memories have inspired her to create some of the stories that she publishes as an adult. And maybe that’s why a particular age group really seems to relate to her books.
- Entrant must put their guess in a comment on the Write Thinking blog. Commenting on Facebook or Twitter doesn't count toward a chance to win. (At present, commenters are not required to sign in, making it easier for more folks to play.)
- Entrant must have a USA mailing address to be eligible to win a book. (Sorry. Cost of postage outside the US is too prohibitive.)
- The first person to name the featured author correctly wins a Robin Lee Hatcher novel (of Robin's choice). If no one has guessed correctly by Friday morning, there will be no winner for this round.
- If there is a winner, he or she will be announced in an update at the bottom of this post. If the winner fails to contact Robin at her Write Thinking email address (see left sidebar) with his/her mailing address, no prize will be awarded to a runner-up.
- No one who has won a book within one month is eligible to win.
Be sure to check back to this post on Friday to see the answer and to see if you've won.
Update: We have a winner!!! Lisa E, please email me your mailing address at firstname.lastname@example.org so both Melody and I can mail you a book.
Melody Carlson is our featured author this week. Here is a bit about her in her own words: "Chris, my husband of 29 years, and I live in a cabin in the woods near the beautiful Cascade Mountains in the Pacific Northwest. Our two sons are grown and we're the proud grandparents of a beautiful granddaughter. Both boys live nearby and we see a lot of them. We've converted their old 'bunkhouse' into a writing studio for me and a guest area/billiards room for friends and family who are always welcome. We recently gave my writing studio (still suffering from its past as a teenage boy's bedroom with carpeting the color of mud) a facelift. Now it's all mine and quite divine, which is great since I spend a lot of time up here." To learn more about this prolific author of fiction for adults and young adults, please visit her web site.
