Susan Katz is the Camp Fire Girl on the left in the photo, which is what she still looks like on the inside. On the outside, she's morphed into the author of eight children's books.

Susan Katz and 5 other people liked Margaret's review of Mrs. Bridge:
Mrs. Bridge by Evan S. Connell
"This is the saddest book I've ever read. This book makes King Lear look like a bedtime story.

“There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.”
W. Somerset Maugham

Arthur Ransome
“You write not for children but for yourself. And if by good fortune children enjoy what you enjoy, why then you are a writer of children's books.”
Arthur Ransome

C.S. Lewis
“I am almost inclined to set it up as a canon that a children's story which is enjoyed only by children is a bad children's story.”
C.S. Lewis

Phyllis A. Whitney
“Good stories are not written, they are rewritten”
Phyllis A. Whitney

“The world is not divided up into bits and classified for those from four to six, from six to eight, from eight to twelve and so on through our three score and ten years, with a special bit for octogenarians, but the same world for all of us, undivided, its riches spread out for us to choose from according to our ages in spirit rather than our ages in years”
Dorothy P. Lathrop
