Thanks!

I was always a huge reader in school--the kid who won the award for reading the most books. I started writing because I wanted to tell stories that would thrill other people the way the books I loved had thrilled me. Ultimately, that's still what inspires me. I just want to tell exciting, entertaining stories about characters people care about. Hopefully I've succeeded.(less)

Jim Bennett, who reviews poetry for KBR (The Kindle Book Review) and is himself a poet, liked I Tumble Through the Diamond Dust rather a lot, giving it five out of five stars:


“Willett writes speculative fiction, so these poems are unusual. They are also a lot of fun. Willett’s illustrator, Wendi Nordell, has added to our enjoyment of this book with an amazing full-page drawing accompanying ea...
