Does she really need an introduction? Okay, just in case: Sarah Dessen is a Good Morning America superfan, tweeter extraordinaire, deviled egg aficionado and, oh yeah, the author of eleven bestselling novels. She and I recently met on the cybernets to talk about her writing life and career. We discussed how publishing has changed since her first book came out in 1996 (before we all had cell phones! before we all had internet!), her steady-as-she-goes process (which I envy), and where to find the Lost Sarah Dessen Novel.
I felt especially inspired by this episode because Sarah has been in it for the long haul in an ever-changing business. She says, “I’m just going to keep putting one foot in front of the other and hope for good things.” That sounds doable!

At the end of this episode, I put out a call to listeners to write to me about what being “at home in your work” looks like to you. I hope to hear from you via email, Facebook, twitter, or the comments!
Watch Sarah’s GMA dream come true! (and briefly view her chickens)
