OKAY SO YOU RESPOSTED MY EDIT ON INSTAGRAM AND IM SO EXCITED I CANT WAIT FOR EVERBLAZE! Did you write the character Sophie inspired by yourself,

Of course I reposted it—it was awesome! I love seeing the stuff readers come up with and sharing it so others can see. So any time you make anything—tag me. :)

As for your question, I wish Sophie was based off me. I was never that brave. And I definitely couldn’t have handled all the things I put her through. But there are little bits of me in her (wow…why does that sound creepy?) For instance, we both tug on our eyelashes when we’re nervous. And we both sleep with a bright blue stuffed elephant named Ella. :)

I think I've read you're keeper series too many times (43. Yes. I counted.)

Whoa—43? That *MIGHT* be more times than I’ve read it (well, okay, maybe not—but you’re getting close) And those are thick books, so clearly you are amazing *high five*
