Oh my God! Supportive Alan wrote to tell me that Jennifer Weiner lists me among favorite authors in her FAQ. I'm in a list of her "chick lit contemporaries," which is a little unnerving because she is a full ten months older than I am, but I am so grateful! I could tell everyone to read Good in Bed and In Her Shoes, but they have, but read them anyway.
The most interesting thing about this is that she wrote her FAQ in 1982, when I was publishing the "Tush Times" out of the family room. Imagine how she feels now that I've written two novels!
