Never the Two Shall Meet? - I Don't Think So!

I'm so excited to report that my friend and Christian Romance Author, Delia Latham, traveled halfway across the United States just to see me!!!

Well...maybe not just to see me, but I was definately on her list of must sees.

Check out the photos!We met up at Bodacious Bar-B-Q in Gilmer, Texas to have lunch and chit chat. Her husband is SO SWEET! We gave each other autographed copies of books.

Even though I'm a writer, it's hard to express in words how much this visit meant to me. I'm good at writing about the world of make believe, but this is real. Until Friday, Delia was a picture on the web, words on a blog, expression in email, and a world away. It takes 3 days to drive from California to Texas and vice versa.

Now I will no longer refer to her as my internet friend. Now I can just call her MY FRIEND. No two sweeter words.

Delia, I can't wait til you move here and bring your beautiful family! Drive home safe!

Okay, I'm not going to say I'm jealous because that's not becoming a Christian lady, but I will say what a blessing it is to be able to meet an online friend face-to-face. I look forward to the time when I'll be able to do the same. I've got a list of "must see's" myself!

LOL You're so beautiful, inside and out, and I am SO, SO HAPPY to have been able to actually meet you and your precious daughter!'ll happen. It's our turn next!
