From Gary:

Daydreaming, reading, and writing are the three things you need to do if you want to be a writer. Also, keep a journal as a young person. It will be priceless when you are an older writer trying to remember details about your younger self!

What do you hope young readers experience from your work?

I hope my readers have fun when they read my books. Laugh and keep on the edge of their seats to see what is coming next.

If you weren't a children's book author/illustrator, what would you do?

I would be an actor on a sitcom!
