on my desk monday

This is an incredibly lovely article written by my editor, Alvina Ling for the May edition of the Horn Book. Editors were asked to write what they learned from the authors they work with, and I was really touched that Alvina chose to write about me. Some of you might know that Alvina & I have been good friends since we were ten years old and the character of Melody Ling in Year of the Dog and Year of the Rat is based on her! So, we have a long history together. My favorite part:

And I love thinking that somewhere out there, two ten-year-old best friends are reading and loving and talking about the book. Maybe someday they’ll grow up to publish books together, too!
