I wrote my first book in kindergarten. Don’t remember what it was about except that it said something nice about my teacher. She made me read it to the class, twice. Guess I was unwittingly showing signs of a promising career in diplomacy but book writing, children’s book writing, has been the dream since one particular day not long after my kindergarten writing debut. Curled up on my window seat, picture book in hand, I vowed to someday delight children with my stories just as my favorite authors were thrilling me. Wish I could remember which book I was holding, a Dr. Suess perhaps? I was was a besotted fan. Still am.
