More About the Author
I decided when I was 9 that I'd grow up to be a writer. It only took me 30 years to achieve my dream! My daughters gave me my first good idea: "Write a story about a girl who can fly." I followed their advice, and MAIL-ORDER WINGS became my first book.
Since then, I've written many fiction and nonfiction books about things that interest me: dinosaurs, friends, magic wishes, presidents, time travel, ancient Rome, volcanoes, aliens, and people who follow their dreams.
Writing is hard work, but I get a lot of support. My daughters and my husband still encourage me and inspire me. My dog nudges me out into the fresh air to take walks. And my two cats sit on my desk while I write, editing by stepping on the computer keys.
