Why I Write

There is little more magical than watching children fall deeply
and hopelessly into books.

The characters become friends.
The places seem like neighborhoods they have traveled.

The emotions become their own.

I want to offer a small piece of that magic.

I want to build part of that spectacular world of books
that makes the world better.

If I can help just one child discover a love of reading,
I will have done a great thing.
