On writing: “What I think I'm doing now is rediscovering the innocence of children that I once took for granted. I cannot relive it or reclaim it, but I can expose it and celebrate it in the books I write. I really like people—I mean, I really like people—and children are some of the best people I know.” (http://aalbc.com/authors/walter1.htm)Quotes
