Note from a reader pretty much says it all.

February 14, 2007

I don’t write in the hope that my books will change the world. I write for “Polly B.,” a reader who sent me this note via my web site:

“I woke up to a snow day today. A perfect gift for a teacher.  I fixed a cup of tea and got back in bed with The Winter Lodge and spent 3 hours finishing the book. Thank you for making it a special day.”

She even sounds like a teacher. I’m guessing Grade 3, because my all-time favorite snow dayteacher, Mrs. Green, taught 3rd grade. But that’s just a guess. I get such lovely little glimpses of people who read my books. This one is the kind of note that makes a writer say, “Mission accomplished.”

You can see more of my own “snow day” photos here.
