Forgot to mention a very special guest who showed up at my Book People reading in Austin: Carl Anderson, PhD, a UT prof. If you live in Dallas, however, you know him as somebody else, starting about this time every year at NorthPark Mall.

Carl was in a purple tie-dye T-shirt on Saturday, but I’d recognize him anywhere. Here’s a picture of us at NorthPark back in 2006. He bought a copy of my book and said he was very interested in reading it. I hope he likes it, or I’m going to have a little too much coal.

    He is the BEST Santa EVER…exactly what I always thought Santa should look like. Oh, now I’m ready for Christmas!
