None of the students could believe it when Ms. Shore told them how many times she had been rejected before she was finally able to get her first book published. Her message to them all: Keep reading and never give up on their dreams. When she began receiving rejections, she took writing classes to improve her writing, and she started writing poetry.
Some of the questions that our students had for Ms. Shore included:
- What is your favorite book?
- After your first book was published, how long did it take to get your other books published?
- Did you really jump over your neighbor's house?
- Why didn't you keep trying to get "Sthicker Tongue Tied" published?
