I've heard it said that "writing is like telling a joke and having to wait two years to know if it was funny." I've found this to be not far from the truth. I spent about two years working on The Legend of Sassafras House before it was released this year. The book is in the hands of kids now, and their reactions have brought me nothing less than joy.
I did an author visit at Oak Grove Middle School, and the kids there were amazing. They know how to make a person feel like a VIP. Not only were they respectful, they were interested in what I had to say.
Thanks to these OGMS students for welcoming me and for reading The Legend of Sassafras House.
These teachers at Oak Grove Middle School encourage their students to read, read, read. I couldn't be luckier that they are also encouraging them to read my book, The Legend of Sassafras House. Thank you for your support! OGMS rocks!
