I was asked to take an author photo of Dan. Before the shoot, we talked about also having a picture of Dan and Laury together, and possibly using it somewhere inside the book, or as an author photo instead of a picture of Dan by himself. Well,,,, a huge, happy surprise! The picture of them together landed on the cover!
We did the shoot at Dan and Laury's lovely, sun-filled house, and the cute kitty was hanging around with us during the shoot. I couldn't finished the shoot without taking a picture of this cutie!
