The dream comes true!
People are so awesome! Karen Duren, District Literacy Coordinator of Monona Grove School District is going to have me in to talk to her students about world-building in my novel. She said this about Backbiters: "It is very timely, as it fits in with social issues right now - pollution and accepting people who are different. I also like the idea of a female protagonist - especially one who is not afraid to be smart. Girls need to see that . . . There was a good mix of teen issues, timely topics, and quirky elements of a fantasy world." I am so happy to be able to encourage young people to use their creativity and to write!
