On finding your big break:
“I think the important thing to remember is it just takes one person… Yes, you’re going to have other disappointments, whether they’re bad reviews or more rejections, but that first break means a lot… I also think it’s really important to remember — and I know this firsthand — that there are story editors, book editors, and agents out there that live to find the writer that nobody else has read and to publish that writer and to say, ‘That’s my writer. I found that writer.’” Read more highlights from the Summer Words 2014 authors.
