My friend, Leigh Ann, puts together a lunchtime program on creative writing for the kids of the F.E. Bellowes Elementary School in Rye Neck. For the second year, she asked me back to be the visiting author. And I just spent a great hour talking about mysteries to -- and listening to -- about thirty of the brightest, most attentive, most enthusiastic bunch of third-, four-, and fifth-graders on the planet.
Truly a highlight of the year. And worth putting off finishing my own book!
