I grew up loving books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, Lois Lenski, L.M. Montgomery, Madeline L'Engle, K.M. Peyton, Noel Streatfield, Mary Norton, and Sydney Taylor. Patricia MacLachlan and Jane Yolen helped me start writing.
As a child I always imagined how wonderful it would be to wake up to a pony in the back yard, but the way the farm I live on now sits it makes better sense for the pastures to be in the front of the house. So I look out my office windows on Gully and Sarah, Pal and Mickey, Syd and Silver, and my son's red pony Hot Wheels. We have utility cats and not enough dogs.
I have no idea what inspires my stories. They aren't inspired, they're written: it's work. If you ask me this question in public I'll give you some sort of answer, but it won't be the truth. The truth is, I have no idea.
