Thankfully, God, my family, my friends, and my publishing team have put up with me moaning, groaning and complaining in general about everything. There have been many highs ( the reaction of the kids) and many more lows on this path.
People keep telling me write for older kids, write for older kids. I have several manuscripts for middle grade and YA readers that are in various stages of development. Who knows whether they will ever see the printing press. But I guess it's my job to keep writing them.
