I've tried a couple of times to meet Jim Butcher, but Mysterious Galaxy bookstore failed in a big way when they hosted him. I admit to having my fangirl moments while meeting authors. Somehow the idea of meeting movie stars leaves me cold.
Ooh what was George RR Martin like?
I've wanted to meet authors but I feel if I went to something like a book signing I wouldn't know what to say.

I have literally stalked Harlan Coben book signings for years - I never get tired of the "Tattoos While You Wait" story. He's a down-to-earth funny guy,
Brad Meltzer is a hoot - he not only posed for a wonderfully hilarious photo with me at ALA Annual in Orlando - he continues to send encouraging tweets as I struggle with my own writing.
David Levithan - I cannot say enough about this man. Mr. Levithan is a talented writer and a brilliant advocate for the marginalized and underserved populations of our society. Talented, gracious, and he opened my eyes to the unfortunate homophobia of a highly lauded YA author. I'd never remove a book from a library - but I am glad Mr. Levithan was brave enough to call out hate speech where it exists.
