From Newsletter of Elizabeth Winthrop, Author.May 2005
I'm a writer in what I call the "creative valley." Sometimes people
call it writer's block, but I happen not to believe in the whole idea of
a block. What's happening to me now is that I'm resting and
refilling, building up the energy and ideas and growing new
characters who will soon start whispering their stories into my ear.
I recently finished the last rewrite of my latest novel, COUNTING ON
GRACE (Wendy Lamb Books, Random House, Spring, 2006) and I'm
hunting around for the next book. Will it finally be the third CASTLE
book? Very possibly. But in the meantime I want to tell you about
my latest picture book, out this month with Henry Holt. I grew up
squashed in the middle of five brothers (two older, three younger)
so it will be no surprise to my family and fans to hear that my latest
work is called SQUASHED IN THE MIDDLE. It tells the story of Daisy
who has to shout to be heard over the din of her noisy, well-
Whenever I speak to kids at schools and book fairs, I tell them that
by the time they reach the age of twelve, they'll have enough ideas
to write fifty books...as long as they catch their experiences in a
journal... as long as they live a noticing life. SQUASHED IN THE
MIDDLE proves that even after more than fifty published books, I'm
still plumbing my own childhood for stories.
I am often blessed with gifted illustrators who with strokes of pen
and brush bring my characters to life. Pat Cummings is no
exception. With energy and a sparkling palette and her own unique
eye, this award-winning illustrator has caught all of Daisy's
emotional ups and downs with her bossy older sister and her
annoying younger brother. I'm hoping that middle children
everywhere will rejoice that their tale has finally been told!
An added bonus is a teaching tips page with ideas (LINK) for
bringing the trials and tribulations of Daisy right home to kids in the
classroom. Hopefully this book will spark class discussion about
how to navigate life in the daily scramble we call family.
Please be sure to visit my brand new school visit page (http://elizabethwinthrop.com/schoolguide.htm) to learn
about my programs in classrooms and at conferences.
I'm also really excited about COUNTING ON GRACE, my middle grade
historical novel about a French Canadian girl working in a New
England mill. But since it won't be available for a year, I'm going to
wait a while to tell you more about that.
I have three books scheduled for 2006 so stay tuned!
