What are you thankful for? Author Jeannie Lin is thankful for her healthy twins, Daniel and Mae-Linh
While I’m a firm believer in giving thanks everyday (there’s way too much to be thankful for then can be mentioned in one day), I asked a few authors what they are thankful for.
Jeannie Lin: Last Christmas my twins were 10 days old and fit inside a small gift bag. I’m thankful that today, 11 months later, they are happy and healthy with chubby little cheeks.
Marjorie M. Liu: As always, I am thankful for my family and all my wonderful friends, new and old, and for the blessing of being alive in this beautiful world doing what I love and being with those I love.
Daniel Marks: I’m thankful to have found such grim, gruesome, like-minded readers and supporters, who’ve made my debut year a fantastic experience!
I’m thankful for every day I can wake up in a country where my family is safe – huge thanks to our military who won’t be home for the holidays.
I’m so thankful for my supportive and loving husband, Tim. He’s been my rock and friend for nearly two decades and is a huge source of inspiration when I’m crafting my heroes.
Thanksgiving always fosters a vivid recollection of the relationships that have come into my life. I’m so thankful for the friendships, experiences and partnerships that I’ve had this year and look forward to the continued opportunities to share the many blessings with others.
Lisa Kessler: I’m thankful for my amazing writer friends who are always there to buoy my spirits. Parts of this year were bleak and painful, and yet, they always made me smile and I still finished two more books in spite of the drama.
I’m thankful for readers that make being an author the best job ever.
Today I’m thankful for the crazy set of circumstances that led me to this incredible second career and to all the amazing, talented people I’ve had the honor of meeting along the way.
And what are you thankful for today? What especially comes to mind as you gather with family and friends? Is this year different from others?
