First off, I am a huge fan of your work! One of my favorite books of all TIME being "Fat Men From Space" when my mother met my, now step-Father, we got talking about books and he is the only other person I know that is aware of that great work of literature! We share that as a bond now! But the topic of which I am writing; I am a 15 Year old boy from Upstate New York, who is very interested in Buisness! I recently had the idea of writing books for kids on different topics (cooking, buisness, school, etc). I wanted to contact you her and ask, What tips would you have for a brand new writer? And more importantly what advice would you give to me on getting te books published and distributed to stores? Thank you so much!

Lemme see, you say you're 15 now. I would suggest that for the next 5 to 10 years you read as much as you can, not only for pleasure and information, but with an eye to seeing how it's done. Also write a lot, trying out different things which you did not know about before. During this period of reading and writing, (and also take walks, play basketball, do schoolwork, not be weird), I would not worry about the possible business side. You can look into that when you know much more about writing.
