BTT: Letters! We get Letters!

From Booking Through Tuesday:

Have you ever written an author a fan letter?

Did you get an answer?

Did it spark a conversation? A meeting?

I have not written a fan letter to an author, although I have considered it. I read several author's blogs, but am too shy to even comment on those. Who am I to speak to them? As a child, I did send a fan letter to Bob Hope, and I have an autographed photo from him he sent in response. Why did I write to him? I have no idea. I also wrote to Melissa Gilbert, and she sent a letter and photo as well. As I recall, I was in 5th grade or so, and Little House on the Prairie was still on the air. So apparently TV played a bigger role in my life.
