is eager to learn her letters. After the letters

Come on in, pull up a chair and stay awhile. Readers of my books now have a place to have some of their questions answered about the wonderful and mysterious world of writing. O.K., maybe not all that mysterious, but writing for me is one way to share my thoughts and interests with others. So, you came to the right place if you were just wondering about my early inspirations and how I began writing.
One of the most important things I do as a writer is to read, so you can also find out about some of my favorite books for kids and meet the illustrator of many of my books, husband and collaborator, James Ransome. And finally, find out more about the books. Enjoy your visit!
