The books are funny and sad and that’s what people respond to.
Normally I name my characters after famous comedians.
I try to be careful because technology changes so much over the years. But some things don’t change. Kids and parents have disagreements kids try to manipulate parents try to sit down with rules and regs. That part never changes.
I think my books talk about kids learning to like and respect themselves and each other. You can’t write a message book you just tell the best story you know how to tell.
