Books -- reading and writing.
Home, cooking, the weather.
And whatever connections I can make between these chapters of my life.

Reading and Writing and Eudora Welty

On the occasion of my last two school visits of the year, I'll share one question I get asked first and maybe most: Why did you become a writer? What inspired you?

And this is pretty much my answer, too.

“Indeed, learning to write may be part of learning to read. For all I know, writing comes out of a superior devotion to reading.”
― Eudora Welty, On Writing
