But I think maybe the best advice I ever got about writing came from Tomie dePaola.

He came to Kettering Elementary School in 1982 for an author visit. I was an 11-year-old sixth grader sitting in the auditorium. He must have done a hundred of those visits and I was just one little girl in a sea of thousands over the decades.
