We lived on the edge of a big meadow in a small valley high in the Rocky Mountains with a trampoline in our backyard.

Me & my little sister

On Thursday afternoons, The Aspen Times came out. After school, I'd go into town and race through the streets selling newspapers.
At twilight, with quarters and dimes bulging my pockets, I'd visit the bookstores — even in that small town, there were three to choose from: Unicorn, Mill Street Station, and Explore Booksellers. On their shelves I found Oz, Narnia and The Secret Garden; I met hobbits and ents, and discovered A Wrinkle in Time and A Wind in the Door.
Week after week, I would select a book to make my own.

Below is some of my student work.
