A fab article by Rebecca Schmitz in the Crozet Gazette captures exactly how I feel about school visits. "You just get all this joy from [young readers]" is both completely true and WHY I WRITE. Nothing is more fun than sharing writing ideas with the very kids who will (hopefully) read my work, and the suggestions they come up with on the fly are often surprising and always inspiring. I love their sheer enthusiasm and intense curiosity! Many thanks for the article and the opportunities given to me by the generous teachers in my area.
