I am in seventh grade I want to be a writer when I grow up, and was wondering if maybe you could share a little bit of your talent with me. What I would like to know most is where you get your inspiration. I think your books are wonderful I love how you put so much feeling into them it shows me that there are no people alike and every person has there flaws.

Inspiration comes from things that happen in your own life–feelings you have about them–and things friends tell you, things you read about in the paper….  The older you get, and the more experience you have, the more you have to inspire you.  Please read my book, “How I came to be a Writer,” and best of luck in your own writing.
