I wrote my first book when I was ten.

There was only one handwritten copy, but thanks to my mom, it has survived. She kept it in her top dresser drawer, along with a photo of JFK, an envelope full of S&H Green Stamps, and every greeting card that anybody ever sent her. I found it recently whe... Read more of this blog post »
