“Both books describe a special relationship between a child and an object. But Ellery‘s magic bike is also a reworking of a story I wrote years ago as part of a high school assignment,” she explained. “When I handed in the assignment, I had no idea that the next day my English teacher would give a copy to all my classmates and in class would hold up their copy and say, “Now this that’s how you write a story!’ I was unsure of my fledgling creative writing skills, and my teacher‘His statement was a welcome boost to my confidence.”
