A few years ago I thought I had hit the pinnacle of my career as a writer when a kid came up to me just before a book tour talk and showed me a picture of his cat, which he had named Theo after me. What could possibly top that?
Well, I just found out! Behold, here is Liam, a third-grader, dressed up as me, complete with painted on beard! For a school project he was supposed top pick a favorite author, write a biography, and dress up as his chosen person. He chose me! How cool is that! Sadly two important details of his portrayal are now out of date: I don't have a beard anymore (new girlfriend) and I don't have any hair on top either (old age?).
Thank you Liam for making my day.
