Reader Spotlight: First a reader, then a writer

This year, we're doing "Reader Spotlight" posts on a bi-weekly basis. We want to feature readers who have been actively following CLC for a while. We're hoping you can get to know some new friends this way. One of the joys of having CLC is that readers have connected with each other, as a result. That's one of the reasons it was started up in the first bring chick lit fans together from all over the world! We've made some amazing friends because of this blog and we hope you'll get to do so too!

If you'd like to be spotlighted sometime this year, please contact us.

See our previous Reader Spotlight posts.

Note from Melissa A: When Gail approached me about participating in the reader spotlight, I had no idea she was also an author. By the time she got back with her answers and mentioned her debut novel, I didn't want to begrudge her the opportunity to participate because as she said: "I've only written one book, but I've read thousands! I guess I would say I'm a reader first!"

Hi Gail. I'm glad to read your bio and get to know you better. We have a common favorite book. I love Blame it on the Fame too. I can't wait for Tracie Banister to come out with another book. I also loved In Need of Therapy.
