In an on-going effort to increase students’ literacy skills, Dr. Michael Myrick, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum & Instruction and Student Services with the Granville County Pubic School System of North Carolina, is videotaping interviews with local authors. I was delighted and honored to have the opportunity to participate. By clicking HERE, you can access my 5 1/2 minute interview on YouTube and hear my responses to the following questions: What inspired you to become an author? Why do you think reading is important? When did you fall in love with reading? What is your writing style? I hope you’ll enjoy it.
