Writing Your Own Story or Book?


I love to hear that readers are writing their own stories and books! And I wish I could read them all. But unfortunately, I can’t. I just don’t have time. But I would encourage you to find a trusted teacher or a writing class in your area so you can get some feedback on your book.



I do take on a few manuscripts each year as paid critiques, usually not taking on writers younger than 12. You can find out more about getting a critique from me on the Manuscript Critiques page.

Get answers to frequently-asked writing questions and post some of your own thoughts and questions with Writer’s Hangout.


School/Library Visits


I love that so many readers write and ask if I can come to their school or library! I would LOVE to!Talk to your teacher or library/media specialist and have them visit my Appearances page since the request will need to come from them. Some schools have had fundraisers to raise money to bring me out; I’ve included some suggestions on the Appearances page.
