I love the story of her eavesdropping on the adults, and using that later as inspiration for her writing. Also cool that she was inspired to write after having kids and seeing the books they chose at the library.

This is a beautiful profile. So many writers forget what it's like for the amateurs but she hasn't forgotten, and she's incredibly supportive of teen writers.

I wish her books were available when I was younger. I've sure she has helped thousands of kids through her honesty.
