Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
My inspiration for writing The Secret Snowflake: A Christmas Story was the birth of my grandson. I wanted to be able to share story time with him in some way, even though I lived across the country. The story line was developed with two things in mind: I wanted it to reflect my son's fantasy sensibilities, as well as my love of Christmas. In this way, I was able to create something that all three generations could share together.
