Goodreads asked Katie Sparks:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Katie Sparks 1) Join SCBWI if you're a children's author! It's the most rewarding organization out there for us writers. The amazing people I have met along the way and the knowledge and experiences I have gained is invaluable.

2) Write and read a lot. We've all been there. Once you stop, it can lead to a long while before you jump back in. Do a little (or a lot!) of both each day.

3) It's hard work so don't give up!
