Asked to be a Guest Author for Red Hill Elementary School’s Readathon (Santa Ana, California), I responded with an enthusiastic Yes! And thanks to technology, from 3,000 miles away, I was able to share screen shots as I read my picture book THE TROUBLE WITH CAULIFLOWER and then read the first chapter of my middle grade novel ME AND THE WEIRDOS.
I had fun voicing the characters, and afterwards the students—who apparently enjoyed listening!—got to ask questions and make comments. Two of my favorites were:
“What was your main purpose for writing this Book?”
“You’re a very good author.”
