J asked Catherine Ryan Hyde:

I read this book a few years ago and I loved it. While you were writing, did you ever imagine that Pay It Forward was going to be as popular as it is now?

Catherine Ryan Hyde Hi J. Never. Never would or could have imagined it. I was an underpublished and very new author at the time. My big dream was just to see it in a bookstore. Never saw the rest of this coming. You could have knocked me over with a feather!
