Anastasia at age 12:
I wrote my first book when I was eleven. It was a picture book, and poetry wasn’t far behind. I wrote poetry in junior high and high school.
Combining the two — picture books and poetry — is how I sold my first book, Air Show.
It’s a poem about an air show. Yes, I write poetry about big machines!
My most recent picture book, Road Work Ahead is also a poem about machinery…
Road work ahead.
Move over. Go slow.
Look at them go.
