I'm one of the lucky writers: plots come easily to me.
My favorite book is always the one I'm working on at the moment.
I decided to write short stories because they got rejected quicker.
I wrote eight full-length adult novels in my twenties. None of them were published.
Actually my first eight books were historical novels, but they were never published.
I love writing and do not know why it is considered such a difficult, agonizing profession.
I believe my readers are crazy about their parents and want to be just like them when they grow up.
I approach serious subjects, and I like to have the good guys win and have the parents among the good guys.
I love all of it, thinking up the plots, getting to know the kids in the story, their parents, backyards, pizza toppings.
I believe my voice is pretty much the same. I've written 75 books, so I'm better at it now than I was earlier in my career.
