She has the wackiest, funniest, most engaging flights of fancy on Twitter, all of which clearly show how her brain works when she writes her books. I yearn to be that funny and free with a brain open wide to whatever kookiness creeps in and no slamming doors of negative self-editing.
She makes even the most stoic people laugh. And we all love a good laugh. Sometimes, though, we love a good cry, too.
