I was heavily influenced by the Narnia series and The Hobbit, and just as much by Disney and Pixar films. Now that I have children, I want to convey that same sense of mystery and awe that I felt as a child (and let's be honest, still feel when reading these and similar books, such as Fablehaven and Spirit Animals).

But let's get more specific: I love the story of BACK BY SUNRISE because it feels very personal to me, even if it is so different from anything I will ever actually experience. The idea came to me when my friend was deploying with the Marines to Iraq, and I couldn’t imagine the pain his daughter would feel if he never returned. So I wrote this fantastical way of dealing with the grief, sort of a modern Land Before Time but with birds and a mouse and a magical necklace.

With TEDDY BEARS IN MONSTERLAND, I've just always loved the idea of our teddy bears coming to life at night to protect us, and so the novel seemed like a logical (and very fun) story to write. (less)
