I got to spend the afternoon with one of my favorite authors-Brandon Mull. (Author of Fablehaven series, Candy Shop Wars series and the Beyonder's Series) My youngest brother Matt auditioned to be in the up-coming book-trailer film for Brandon's new book in the Candy Shop Wars and got the lead part as "Nate". (He's the cute kid in the blue shirt.) I went to Salt Lake to see him film one of the scenes and Brandon showed up to hang out. It was so great!
So I have always considered myself someone who would never get star-struck...because I am so cool,calm,collected...I would NEVER act like an idiot around a famous person. Than I met Brandon Mull, and as hard as I tried to act cool...I acted like an idiot. There are a few rules in meeting a famous person. You don't let them know: You have read ALL of their books and that you know ALL of the names of their characters. Oh well, I'm sure he was flattered that a 28 year old woman was totally nuts over his...um...children's books.:)
