Photo of the Month #9

Since the two Sock Fluff posts straddling this one address some of my reading pleasures when I was growing up, I thought it would be fun to post a photo of me taken during that period of my life. Here I am with my dad.

Kathy Stinson and her father

I blogged about him in the month of his birthday last year.

    Great pic to have – have you ever used a "kid" picture for your author pic in a book? I want to do that with "Harmony", but I don't think I have any that would work – unlike my kids – we've got hundreds of pictures of them.

    I have never used a kid-pic of me as an author photo in a book, just as my profile pic on Facebook, as part of the National Reading Campaign.

    I can't imagine a kid-pic of you would look so very different from your grown-up pic. (I mean that in the nicest way!)

    I love the way you both have your arms folded the same way. Were you intentionally copying him?

    Not intentionally, Janet, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if I was trying on some level to emulate him.
