And really she doesn’t say anything that isn’t completely sensible.

Many years ago, I fell in love with a book by Zilpha Keatley Snyder called The Headless Cupid. For those who don’t know who she is, she’s written 43 books and won the Newbery Award three times. Her collective works have won more awards than God.

On her vastly understated website, I found a brief article on writing. Her methods are so simple, but the results are not. She produces incredibly imaginative stories for young adults that still manages to weave in real-life issues through believable characters. She is a magical writer if there ever was.

I’m just in awe.
