Author's Comment: 10 THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT ME: 10) The first book I ever wrote was about a hermit crab, inspired by a pet I once owned. 9) My favorite color is purple. 8) I love to read mysteries. When I was Judy's age, I read all 56 classic Nancy Drew books...in order! Jeepers! 7) I used to collect scabs so I could examine them under the microscope that I got for my 8th birthday. 6) My four sisters and I often made up our own language, which included the words "Hoidi Boidi", "oogey", "retzel crummypuss" and "poony-poony". 5) My favorite TV show is JEOPARDY! 4) To research my Sisters Club book, THE RULE OF THREE, I toured San Francisco in search of the ultimate cupcake. The winner: Sleepless in San Francisco. 3) When I was a kid, I fell down a hill from chasing the ice-cream truck and had to get stitches. 2) When I was a librarian, I used to tell stories in sign language. That's how I got the expression "same-same" for Judy. 1) I share a birthday (February 28) with a famous princess, race car driver and a gangster.
