The high we get from writing the end of a book, from getting an offer of publication, is something we’re all working towards, but the trick is to find that in the everyday struggle with words. I solved one small problem in my novel today, and I’m flying!

❤️ this: ESL students ⁦⁩ in KS went online and discovered Barney Greengrass, the deli in my book, is a real place. So they celebrated finishing The Doughnut Fix with a Barney’s care package of bagels, challah, black-and-white cookies, and hamentashen! ⁦

Middle schoolers are my peeps! I love how school visits keep me focused on why I write, and who I write for. It's not easy growing through those middle years! Friends in books helped me--I aim to return the favor.

Esther Averill taught me the meaning of family, forgiveness, purpose, and generosity, all through her stories about a red-scarf-wearing black cat named Jenny Linsky. Such is the genius of children’s literature.

My 11 yo daughter: Do you realize how much more advanced the world would be if women had been allowed to work anywhere for most of history? We’d probably be on Mars now.

College: rejected by director of the fiction-writing seminar, who said he chose "those w/the greatest potential." For 20 years, I worked my a** off to prove him wrong. Now, 25+ books later... Without that rejection, I might never have been published.
