So Trent told me a story this morning.
Last night his wife Laura said something about wanting to write a story. She then opined the fact that she’s not good at writing anything longer than about three or four minutes, spoken.
Trent said, “I told her I could have her talk to someone who writes really well, thinking of you. She said ‘I don’t think Steve will answer a question like that. I don’t think Neil will either. What other famous authors are you on a first-name basis with?'”
So, apparently I’m in the same boat with Messrs. Brust and Gaiman. :)
