She actually made these-- from a ball of wool. Geesh.
Thank you. I try to balance the writerly type posts with the kinds of stuff my friends and family might want to read. But, at the same time, this is my writing blog so I only write about reading and writing. I write about whatever comes to me, as long as it has something to do with writing, reading and books.
You're also working on novels, what type of audience do you normally write for?
I write for MG and YA. I think I like writing for children because it fulfills my need to write, with my need to teach (and mother). I don’t write textbooks and I don’t let my fiction sound preachy, but every book is a learning experience for me and for my readers. Of course I want to entertain, but I also want kids to learn a little something about the world around them and beyond their comfort zone.
