Questions from Readers
How long does it take to write a book?
Where do you get ideas for books?
Once when I heard well-known author/artist Patricia Polacco speak, she gave the following advice: “Write about what you know.” Now, she wasn’t the first person to say that, but she is a perfect example of someone who lives and writes by that idea. Since I live on a farm, since I work with young children, since I have a passion for nature, I find that the words come easily when I am writing about these subjects. But I do love the challenge of writing about topics that I know little about. That’s called RESEARCH!
When is your next book coming out?
