Kristy Woodson Harvey had just hit the New York Times bestseller list for her new novel “Under The Southern Sky” right before I chatted with her for my series, “Write Your Story.” Needless to say, we were both ecstatic about the news.

It’s such a beautiful book, and the honor is so well deserved. I love Kristy’s story about how she got started writing novels, and I think it will inspire anyone who’s ever doubted if they should write a book or not.

Kristy and I also played 5 questions and found out that we have the same kind of first reader. Find out who it is, plus why exclamation marks can make or break the writing process (for us, at least!)
