Happy news yesterday. Su Hutchens and I finished the first draft of a story set in the area where she and her husband, Dan, live in the far north country of Colorado. It’s a wild, wonderful place filled with stories. Ours is one of them.
We’re not finished with the writing yet but we’re a lot closer to the end than the beginning. We’re excited and eager to get our work out there as soon as possible, hopefully in the next week or so. Su, you make a great partner and I’ve had a fine time working with you. We look forward to having you and Dan stay with us again in November when I receive the Laura Ingalls Wilder Children’s Literature Medal. Let’s hope we’ll have something else to celebrate by then.
