Words of Encouragement

Sometimes the Underground Forest between publishing sales is dark and twisty. And then, around a tight corner, you find the light of words from kind hearts.

The awarded, amazing poet Nikki Grimes picked up Loose Threads recently and said:
"Read Loose Threads in one sitting. Could not put it down. Wow." I say, "Wow."

And then I received fan email from a thirteen year old who had begun ballet after reading On Pointe...twenty times! She had just finished her twenty-first reading when she wrote me. At the close of the letter where the perfect words: "...keep writing! Thank you so much and I will be reading On Pointe many more times."

These are words to light my way. One step and then the next.
