Have you ever written an author a fan letter?
Did you get an answer?
Did it spark a conversation? A meeting?
(And, sure, I suppose that e-mails DO count . . . but Iâ€™d say no to something like a message board on which the author happens to participate.) – BTT
This is going to be short: No, I have never written to an author. I’ve just not be inclined. I have written emails to fanfiction authors, but not real published ones. I think the closest I’ve come to an author is reading Neil Gaiman’s blog. I’ve been touched by a lot of books too, but never been able to express such things to the author of it.
