Who is my writing hero?

There are one too many, but I would like to mention some names. Jane Yolen’s work strengthens me. Each time I read I Am The Storm, I feel secure. Her perfect choice of words tugs me. Meera Sriram’s writing evokes nostalgia. Between Two Worlds reminds me of sweet memories I amassed, while growing up in India. Supriya Kelkar’s The Many Colors of Harpreet Singh helps me feel brave when I need a boost.

As I enter the literary world with Kara’s Dreams, my debut picture book, I know I will continue to be enchanted with wonderful books. Excellent writing is, and will always be my hero.

Author interview with Jan Milusich

When did you start writing? What drew you to writing?
