Keepin' it Real
The great thing about being a "famous author" is that nobody knows who you are. Your books can be read all around the globe, be turned into audio books and movies...and you can still go down to the grocery store in sweats, having a bad hair day (or, in my case, week) without the fear of being recognized. I have a friend who anchors the local news, and every time I'm with her there are prying eyes and whispers and autograph requests. She used to begin to explain to her fans who I was, but I said, No, please don't! I'm happy to be one of her fans; happy to be in the background. I have no interest in giving up my sweats.
