This is a late post since I’ve been knocked on my butt with a bad head cold, which I believe I caught at Hamlet from the woman behind me who wouldn’t stop sneezing and coughing. I get it. I love Hamlet too but lady, if you’re sick – stay home!
So now that I’ve woken briefly from my coma, I wanted to thank Patrice over at Whimsically Yours for the interview that she posted. You can find out where I get my ideas from, what Lizzy’s name was the first time around, where my favorite place to write is and what my spirit animal is. Also things like this:
Why did you decide to write Middle Grade Fiction?
Middle Grade Fiction had the greatest impact on me when I was a young reader. I know a lot of people get into reading when they are older with young adult books but for me it was the Chronicles of Narnia and Mrs. Who, Mrs. Which and Mrs. Whatsit in Wrinkle in Time. Those were the characters that really left an impact on me. Bridge to Terabithia took me to a world that I believed in. To me, it was as real as the one I lived in. So did Narnia. I guess I never stopped checking the back of the wardrobe for snowflakes…just in case. Cause, what if?
Come peek behind the wardrobe….cause, like I said, what if?
And to Patrice – my Starburst of Thanks (they are after all my favorite candy). Upcoming on her site will be a review (fingers crossed) and a Lizzy Speare and the Cursed Tomb giveaway. Stay tuned!
Thanks again Patrice! Okay back to bed for me.
