His inspiration came from the poverty he witnessed as a child in Bangladesh because before he started his village bank, […]

The Case for Romance in Middle-Grade and Young Adult

Question to anyone who wants to answer: When you read a mystery, science fiction, bestselling novel or any other fiction novel, whether you are an adult, a teen or a child, do you like some romance in the story? I ask this for a few reasons. First, when I asked for ideas to blog about for girls, my wonderful friend Amie, who counsels teens and families, said, “Girls want to […]

On a Quest for Readers Part Two

The other day on WOW! Women On Writing‘s blog I wrote a post about my quest for readers. If you want to read that post, you can check it out here.

She talked to me about how I don’t really have books in […]

Why I Voted Today and How To Get Others To (Maybe)
