  1. Hi Natalie,
    I just finished your book and burst into tears when in chapter 29, Hollywood offered a surprise (spoiler alert). Just goes to show, you can’t judge a book by its cover; double entendre intended.

    I’m just here at your site to say thanks for a spellbinding read and to ask when your next event or reading will be–I’d like to encourage the students to attend, as they will be finishing your book soon too. We are at SJSU.

    • Hi Kennedy, Thanks for your message! I’m so happy to know you enjoyed the book. That’s what I love to hear! I know how you feel about Hollywood. I cried as I wrote that chapter. I still remember exactly where I was when I came up with that idea: I was at a Ragdale, a writer’s residency near Chicago. I had been working on that chapter and couldn’t figure out the ending, so I went on a long bike ride to clear my head. I was riding along a long stretch of road when all of a sudden– wham!–I realized what could happen. Like you, I burst into tears! To this day, that’s still one of my favorite scenes. I’ll keep you posted re: my next event that’s near you. Life is pretty busy these days and I don’t have anything on the calendar, but I’ll keep you posted. Thanks again for writing! xoxo

      • I left you a message on a long-shot because I know you are busy working on your project these days, so thank you for getting back to me, Natalie. I (actually all of us students and readers currently enjoying your book in our group) look forward to your continued success.

        You’re inspirational for us and we’re rooting for you! ā¤

      • Hi Natalie,
        ‘So happy for your success with the series! One good thing leads to another!
        I just wanted to ask if I could interview you sometime before the CLA event at SJSU’s Hammer Theater. My goal is to write a feature article for our campus magazine and paper.

        BTW: I’m writing you through your WordPess site, so that you’ll be able to reference our messaging back and forth from last year. Ok…’hope hear from you.

        šŸ™‚ Kennedy

  2. Hi Natalie, I was at the MCDS luncheon today and was spellbound listening to your story of how you came to write Queen Sugar. I am the librarian at Brandeis Marin and I attended with Barbara Cohen. After listening to so many authors over the years, I have never heard anyone like you who weaves such a wonderful true story of the writing process from start to finish.
    I look forward to reading your book and I want to thank you for making my day today!!!!
    What an inspiration you are!
    Liz Atterman

    • Hi Liz,

      You are so very welcome! I’m glad to know you enjoyed my talk and that my story resonated with you. It was a real treat for me to speak at the luncheon. Enjoy Queen Sugar. And thanks again for getting in touch!
