        A Quote from the Author

         “I used to tell people that I was going to be a teacher, a lawyer, or hairdresser."

        "I wrote all the time."

        "I read all the time."

        "I wrote on everything and everywhere…I wrote on paper bags and my shoes and denim bindersI chalked stories across sidewalks and penciled tiny tales in notebook margins." 

        "I loved and still love watching words flower into sentences and sentences blossom into stories.”
