Back To School!


December 16th, 2019 Posted 8:18 am

Haven’t had a chance to mention what a great time I had visiting 2 Newark NJ schools last week (Luis Munoz Marin and Rafael Hernandez), talking to 4th and 5th graders about Ruff vs. Fluff (first in the Queenie and Arthur series for middle-graders). Amazingly warm welcome, excellent questions (all of the kids had read at least part of the book – what writer could ask for more?), and very impressive teachers. Many thanks to the My Very Own Library organization for inviting me. “Where did you get the idea?” is a question that comes up over and over in one form or another. I wish it wouldn’t! The true answer – “Out of the blue” – isn’t helpful.


School Visit

Today we’re in Newark NJ for a couple of school visits. These are fun! We should do more. We’ll be talking about the Queenie and Arthur series. I usually mention that I was once the same age as the kids. That’s a shocker for all concerned. Then I do a whole thing about people being like a tree inside – with the rings for every year. As a writer, it’s good to be able to access, say, the twelve year old ring. Because in some ways I never grew up, that’s a snap for me.
