When I’ve been out and about book signing, at book fairs etc. I’ve been asked about my reasons for writing. I guess this differs from author to author, but for those of you who might be interested I’ve included my “Mission Statement” below:
The open book is a path to Reading, and Reading is the open door to a World of Wonderment where anything is possible. In some small way I hope to guide every emergent reader towards the path.
