It goes without saying that I love all my fans and all the kiddos and teens (and adults) who read my books--but there is an extra special place in my heart for my TWI (Teen Writer's Institute) kids. These guys put up with my for at least a week (sometimes two!) on the San Jose State Campus during the summer where we write our hearts out four hours a day. Every year new kids come in and originals come back and I never fail to be astounded (and occasionally frightened) by the talent, zest, and motivation that these kids display. And we come up with some pretty great novel ideas, too...
