Interview with Sarah Abbett

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, I do. I was in 4th grade (about 9 for those of you not in the states) and decided that my stuffed panda bear (who had the very original name of Beary) was actually Super Beary - defender of all that was good and right. I still don't know why I picked a peacock for the villain, but Super Beary saved the day against the evil peacock who wanted to take over the world.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
If I can invite the reader into the world inside my head and they can see it and enjoy it too - that's good writing. And it transcends all kinds of barriers. I love that people can connect on that level.
