DS CoverI’m looking forward to visiting Alma Heights Christian School on Friday. It’s always exciting to talk with students about writing. Of all the ways to inspire children to read, I believe talking with an author rates up there at the top. Let’s face it, kids do a lot of reading. In a school year, children read countless stories, but they rarely have the opportunity to talk to a book author about writing. Another aspect of my visit on Friday that excites me is I will be able to put my books into readers’ hands. Something about selling books to real people is validating. All that hard work equals books sales and ultimately appreciation. I can’t wait!alma
