I have always enjoyed the idea of being in a classroom helping students.  Oddly enough, I never loved the idea of being a teacher.  I would definitely love to be a college instructor, or professor, or whatever the right title would be, but I have a healthy fear of large groups of kids younger than that when I would see them daily.

Maybe that’s why I am absolutely thrilled to be starting a little tour of some classrooms to talk about my book.  I will be at my daughter Haven’s kindergarten class tomorrow.  It will likely be the most challenging class I talk to since none of them can really even read, let alone potentially enjoy a middle grade novel.  I’m still pumped though.  I know we will have a blast together.

Over the next few weeks, I will be meeting with a number of classes around Montana, and hopefully beyond.  The idea of talking about the creative process is a passion of mine.  I want to help kids find the fun in writing and understand the importance of writing in almost any adult path they choose.  Plus I just want to have fun joking around with kids!

I will post about how it all goes, but in the meantime, wish me luck!
