Deirdra: Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?
The other person is James Dashner of Maze Runner fame. I actually wrote this dude his very first fan letter, back in the days of his Jimmy Fincher Saga. I know because he was friends with my mom, and he told her, and she told me. I remember my mom telling me about all of his early frustrations getting noticed as writer...and now he's rockin' the New York Times Bestseller List! If that's not inspirational, I don't know what is!
