Albert Borris and CRASH INTO ME
As I've written previously, Albert Borris, debut author of CRASH INTO ME and member of the Class of 2k9 authors, suffered a severe stroke last December resulting in aphasia, or an inability to talk. Because of his situation, his fellow 2k9 writers have created a publicity campaign on his behalf, resulting in some extraordinary media and internet attention.
I want to salute Albert - a brave and giving soul who has written a remarkable YA book - and the Class of 2k9. What a wonderful community of writers.
As I'm off to Vermont College tomorrow for two weeks, I may not be posting, unless I find a moment and can fill you all in on the exciting developments there!
