Back to Our Younger Self (More)

The joy of writing for kids – excerpt from an email sent by 12-year-old reader:

I have read Woof, Arf, and Bow Wow, all of which I have re-read at least 10 times. The series is my absolute favorite! Every time I open A Birdie and Bowser novel, I feel like I am there. I am Birdie, with her handsome doggie, solving mysteries together. We are jumping off of bridges together, finding my father’s killer, or finding Snoozy and the mysterious Mr. Nice Guy. I feel this connection to Birdie when I read your books. She is a young Sherlock Holmes, and so am I. I always find out my Christmas and birthday presents before I open them! And although I’ve never jumped off of a bridge, I have jumped a fence when I thought the police were after me for trespassing without knowing it. It was only a pick-up with an orange light on top (one of those over-sized load trucks)!

    G’day all.
    Woof was our only Spencer Quinn that survived the house fire.
    We loved it before, but we treasure it now.
    A great review.
    Enjoy this day.

    I don’t know who coined it, but I know I need a yarn baby of my very own or I’m going to be in a very bad mood.
