I can draw on teens from 1964 to 2001 to find a part of the voice I need.Tags: Often, Thinking, Working

There was such a revelation in knowing that a story could be told like that.Tags: Feeling, Real, Small

Sometimes a book is better than it ever had a right to be because of the history the reader brings to the reading and because of the methods educators use to bring a particular story alive.Tags: Book, History, Sometimes
The premise of 'Deadline' forced me to go against my own grain with a character determined to find all that is valuable in that time. I believe this is a story about redemption; how, even with the best intentions, it's sometimes found and sometimes not.Tags: Best, Character, Time
