I hope my stories feel true to young readers. My favorite reaction is laughter.

How has reading influenced your life?

Books are my oldest best friend. They make me feel safe and comfortable and are fun to hang out with.

What world have you created in a book that you'd most like to live in?

Have books around. Keep one in your bag and in your car. Read while snacking. Rotate them or go to the library. Give your kids all kinds of things to read, magazines, board books, comics, newspaper and see what they are interested in.
