Nearly Wordless Wednesday: Brandon Mull

Lillian's favorite books are the Fablehaven series, so she was thrilled to meet the author, Brandon Mull, last Saturday. He took the time to talk to her and Joey and find out their interests, even though there was a long line. She was especially excited when he told her the next Fablehaven book would be out in March, just in time for her birthday. He was gracious, and afterwards, Lillian told me, "I bet he's a good dad."

edited to add: Until Debbie's comment, I hadn't realized that yes, years ago, I went to Church every week with Brandon Mull, before he was famous. This was back when we had just two children and before I knew DH would one day arrive an hour early just to get his autograph. =) In fact, I just pulled out a picture directory of the BYU 54th Ward, and there he is, looking essentially the same as he does in the picture above!

My husband has been saying for months that he knew him from somewhere, and now we know where!

My Annie LOVES those books! She was driving me nuts to take her to the library to see if they had the newest one!!

How cool that you guys got to meet the author. I'm going to have to check and see if he is coming near us!

Oooooh, I'm so jealous. My kids LOVE those books, so I had our ward book club read the first one - and we are all SO addicted!! Do you remember the Mulls being in our ward? I've been trying to build up my courage for 6 months to email him and see if he'll visit our area, but I feel a little silly saying "Do you remember me...?" - we'll see if I can swallow my pride and try it. :)
