I'm sure there were times when I wish I had thought, 'Gosh, that might really embarrass mom and dad,' but our parents didn't raise us to think about them. They're very selfless and they wanted us to have as normal of a college life as possible. So really, we didn't think of any repercussions.
I'm more like my father, personality-wise. But my mom and I get alone really well, obviously, because my mom and my dad get along so well.
I had always loved to write and my mom was my editor for my school papers.
I think I've become more like my mom just because of what we're both interested in, children and teaching and writing.
[My mom] had always wanted to write a children's book. She was a children's librarian and an elementary school teacher, so of course she loves children and children's literature.
[My mom] is quite the strict editor. I feel like maybe she has more of the old-school editing style, which really works in picture books, because you don't want to articulate anything in words that is already shown through the pictures.
As I've gotten older, my mannerisms are more and more like my mom's. Also, she was an educator - she's extremely passionate about education and children. I guess I inherited that in some way.
Most people actually think I'm more like my mom because we're interested in the same things.
