“True success is figuring out your life and career so you never have to be around jerks.”
I wanted to write all-ages books, kids’ literature that stands up when you read it today... It may be that this is not what the market wants, but as an exercise it was what I wanted to do. It also stops you leaning on lazy attention-getting devices – sudden death, sudden sexy times. You have to be a lot more resourceful as you write.
There are many things this world has too much of, but books and storytellers are not two of them.
