Tammi,
Thanks so much for telling us about the interview.  What a joy to read about Kristy's process.  I was in an online crit group with her for a short time many years ago and I'm so delighted to hear of her success with this book.  Such lovely news!  Thanks for sharing the interview with us and big congratulations to Kristy!  :stars3
