Let’s face it! We write because we love it. We write because we have to. We write because it’s our passion. We write because it’s cheaper than therapy. Most of the time, the money isn’t great, but there are benefits. Sometimes titles are singled out for recognition, and this is the frosting on the cake. And in case you’ve forgotten, the frosting is the best part. I’m proud to announce that THE RAIN WIZARD: THE AMAZING, MYSTERIOUS, TRUE LIFE OF CHARLES MALLORY HATFIELD was singled out by the California Reading Association’s Eureka! Award Committee for GOLD. Doing a happy dance here!
