I was the girl who tried to visit Narnia through my parents' closet. I was seven– and I was pretty sure it wouldn't work. But I had to try!
I think I've been trying ever since. For me, fairy tale retellings were the best way to step into a world of awe and adventure.
Not that I have any problems with this one. I'm a high school teacher who lives within sight of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains. I teach creative writing and math classes with interesting word problems. During the school year, I live off coffee and chocolate and afternoon naps that let me write late into the night. During the summer, I love having the extra time to travel and, of course, write.
