|Geisel Award Winner!|
Check out her blog, here. Grace is the kind of author that I want to be.
2. So is Jane Yolen.
|Caldecott winner....oh yeah!|
3. And then, there's Cynthia. Cynthia Rylant, that is.
Her Henry and Mudge books were among the first that inspired me to write my own easy readers.
|Cutest. Couple. Ever.|
|Yes, that is a Newberry Medal|
I am sensing a theme--maybe with the Oscars looming I am thinking about award-winning authors...I dunno. But I do know that these writers and their collective spirits of writerly freedom inspire me and ignite within me the desire to be better at my profession as a writer, to push myself to try new things, and to give to my writing the best effort that I can.
When I grow up, I want to be them.
What writers inspire you?
