STUDENTS & TEACHERS
In this section of the website, you'll find:
Links to Book Guides and resources about writing, including a link to the best experience I've ever had being interviewed as an author.
Also included is information about Author Visits. I talk about some of the issues that may concern parents about my visits, and how I respond to those. There is also information on how to arrange for me to come speak at your school.
Please tell me about your background, where you grew up, how you became a writer.
I was brought up in Central Pennsylvania in a very strict Catholic home. My family didn’t encourage a career as a writer, in part, because they were worried about my ability to make a steady living. Instead, my parents suggested that I become a nurse or work in state government.
What made you decide to become a writer?
