Kathy Stinson Above all, read. Read lots. Read widely. And write.
Kathy Stinson Too hard a question if I consider all the books I've read, so limiting myself to my own books, I'll say Daniel and Ruby in the novel, BECOMING RUBY,…moreToo hard a question if I consider all the books I've read, so limiting myself to my own books, I'll say Daniel and Ruby in the novel, BECOMING RUBY, because their relationship takes me back to when I was 15 years old and in love. I also really like Harry and Walter, in the picture book HARRY AND WALTER -- not a 'couple' in the usual sense but it's a pretty great friendship just the same.(less)
