Facebook: Jessica Robinson
Favorite book: JULIA CHILD: MY LIFE IN FRANCE

If you could have dinner with any author, who would it be and what would you ask him/her? Julia Child. I think I'd ask her, how she kept herself so composed while trying to publish her first cookbook. What made her push forward and take on the huge task of getting it done?
What is the best piece of writing advice you ever received? Keep going and be prepared for lots of rejections from literary agents. Someone will eventually see something special in your writing and sign you as one of their clients.
Finish these sentences:
I wish I... knew it would be such an emotional roller coaster of sorts with trying to publish my first book. I also wish I could stop noticing how many other people have recently published books.
If I knew...more about the process of becoming published, or how long it may take, I would possibly relax a bit.
