I like to write about things that have really happened to my children, my former students, my family members or myself. Writing from real events and then stretching them into fiction helps keep the initial inspiration of the stories I write fresh, while allowing me to play with them. That way I am able to reach, delight or move any reader- whether they’ve had the same experiences or not. Ultimately, I like to write stories that will have meaning for a child.
