Inside Charlotte Sullivan Wild was the idea of stories, long before she could write. So she told tales to her kindergarten teacher at the typewriter. Soon she read and wrote herself. So many stories (so many cross-outs). After years of teaching stories, and asking authors about their stories on the radio, and even selling stories in a bookstore—AT LAST, one of her ideas grew into this very book in your hands. Originally from Minnesota—land of sweet, crisp apples—she now scribbles her ideas in Texas amid clouds of dancing butterflies. Learn more at www.charlotteswild.com.
