“Writing is one of the few careers for which you essentially train yourself, the other two major ones being juggling and pickpocketing.”
Maureen Johnson

“Debbie had to get up and slice me a thick piece of cake before she could answer. And I do mean thick. Harry Potter volume seven thick. I could have knocked out a burglar with this piece of cake. Once I tasted it, though, it seemed just the right size.”
Maureen Johnson, Let It Snow

“Fear can’t hurt you,” she said. “When it washes over you, give it no power. It’s a snake with no venom. Remember that. That knowledge can save you.”
Maureen Johnson
