After holding onto the Love Award for way too long, I'm passing it on to someone who inspired me when I was in doubt and didn't even know I needed encouragement. I met Jacqui Robbins at the NY SCBWI last February. She's funny, confident, professional, and someone I always want to sit next to in the conference rooms.
This summer I had a very mixed review of my manuscript and she caught me in the lobby and kind of pressed me about what I was doing with it. She was very encouraging and really ignited my enthusiasm when I was thinking of putting The Pardy Boys aside. So here's a small token for your help. I love you THIS much.
