Special Needs Characters

Question:

I love your books. There is just no other way to put it. Alice is so real and down to earth, and she wonders about the same things I do. She and her friends face problems that real girls face, and each book is like a guide to one element of real life!

        I particularly like how you created Amy Sheldon. I have a sister and brother with special needs, and I tend to love books that have a character in them with disabilities.

I’m so glad you enjoy my books.  I wasn’t really thinking about “special needs” in particular when I developed Amy Sheldon.  She just sort of grew on me–an example of that infinite variety of human beings on this earth.
