"I was born in Crystal Springs,Mississippi, and raised in Chicago, Illinois, along with five sisters and two brothers. Growing up in such a large family, I had to have a good sense of humor--to make up for a lack of space. My sisters and brothers were pretty funny, too--but my father said I was 'right witty.'
"During author visits, children sometimes ask where I got 'such a good imagination.' I tell them that while I was growing up, being bored was out of the question! You see, if we told our parents we were bored, they were sure to find some work for us to do. So we made sure to keep busy. We told stories; played 'rock teacher,' baseball, dodgeball, and Red Rover; had tea parties; and-my favorite--dressed up and put on our plays.
"I can't remember a time when I wasn't writing and collecting words. Cucumber was a favorite word once, then chutney. 'Chutney, chutney, chut-ney,' I would chant over and over again. I still love the sound of words and the feelings they evoke as they come out of me.
"In fact, I love everything about writing right down to the sound my pencil makes as it travels across the page. In second grade, I had a Thanksgiving poem published in our school newspaper. It was printed on pink paper, and I still remember the joy I felt to see my name in print. Sometimes people think I'm weird when I tell them how much I love having my stories edited and critiqued by my editor. I tell them that editing means that someone cares about my work as much as I do. I have to admit, I don't often agree with my editor at first, but on my second or third reading, I usually come around.
"I'm probably most well known for my book Harvey Potter's Balloon Farm, but publishing takes time, and it seemed like it took forever before Harvey Potter was finally published. It was worth the wait, though. I tell kids that things don't always happen overnight--you do the work, and then you wait, sort of like waiting for holidays or birthdays. I always autograph Harvey Potter the same way: Hold fast to your dreams, as you would your balloons!"
