Marvin Moss Elementary School Rocks!
What a great day I just had. I spoke at my cousin Anna's school. The kids were excellent and I spoke to a large group, then taught a mini-writing class to Anna's class. They were so smart and creative. We had a blast. I think there are many excellent little writers in her class.
My favorite part of the whole day was getting to hang out and talk with Anna and her family--my favorite cousin Diane, her husband Chris, and their son, Bradly. I love them so much and they are a great family. I can't wait to get to know them more.
The best part of my book tour is getting to reconnect with old friends and family. My old friend Bonnie Peacock came by my book signing at the Barnes and Noble. We had a great chat and it was so awesome to see her! I sold lots of books today, about 32, and life is good.
This is just the start of my trip, but it's going so well.
Best wishes to all of you out there, and to all of you writers out there: get writing. Start with a great first line, create a cool character, be really mean to that character, then throw in even worse problems, and end with a twist.
