Comments from the author about writing: As a freelance writer, I've written about children's and young adult literature for an educational publisher for about fifteen years. I now write for LIBRARYSPARKS magazine every month. The process of researching and writing about literature on a different theme every month is exciting and challenging. It's the best job I can imagine! But all of that writing about children's literature inevitably got me wondering if I could write fiction myself--if I could handle plot, characters, etc. I had a favorite subject (the Muses of Greek mythology) in mind and decided to give it a try, mainly to learn all I could about the process, in order to appreciate literature more and do my job better. I've learned more than I ever imagined I would already, and had great fun doing it!
