Last spring I had the chance to meet her in real life when she came through San Francisco on tour for her newest book, Notes From A Blue Bike. I came to her coffee shop q&a as a fan girl planning to hide in the dark corner until it was time to have her sign my copy of her book and force her to take a selfie with me. So, imagine my surprise when she said hi to me and told the room that she was reading my book. Her generosity was and is a great gift.
When she asked me to be a guest on her podcast, I squealed a little and tried not to bite my fingernails, and did some pushups to pump me up beforehand. (Just kidding about the pushups part. Actually, I just ate dark chocolate to pump me up. It works the same and it's much more fun.) She's on a world tour right now with her family (which you should definitely be following on ...so cool.) so she called me on a Saturday in Australia, which was a Friday night in San Francisco. Don't you love the internet sometimes?
We talked about the back story of Found, my current obsession with books about time and rest, what Hemingway would've tweeted if Twitter had been available. (Glory for the lack of Twitter for Hemingway.) And how I can't seem to stop watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix. (I blame my pregnancy.)
