How did you know you wanted to be an author? I have always loved to read and as a teacher thought that I had stories, that kids might find fun to read about, and might learn something, too!
What is your advice for aspiring authors? Many people have said this but it is very true…write about what interests you and that interest will come out in your words.
Do you have any writing rituals or practices?I don’t really have any writing rituals. I first come up with an idea and then the story seems to just develop from there.
What message to you want readers to remember?Read. Read. Read. You can travel the world by just reading. You can be a time traveler,both past and future, by reading a book. Books can make you have so many emotions and can spark an interest in you. As a child, I remember reading about Amelia Earhart-she was a role model to me that you can achieve your goals by hard work and not giving up!
