How long have you been a teacher? And what subject do you teach?
I have taught for 27 years, from 3rd grade through 8th grade. I currently teach 6-7-8th grade History and English at Garden Valley School.
What inspired you to write this book?
I had written and published about a dozen stories for outdoor magazines and had come to a dead-end there, so I decided to write a book.
How much of an inspiration were your kids?
