Description
Peg Kehret, who told of her childhood battle with polio in Small Steps: The Year I Got Polio , now shares the story of her writing career. It began at the age of ten when she wrote and sold the Dog Newspaper . The paper was supposed to feature the tales of local dogs, but mostly it was about her own dog, B.J. After four issues, it folded. But Peg learned a valuable lesson: If she wanted people to read what she wrote, she had to write something interesting. Peg went on to write radio commercials, prize-winning contest entries, magazine articles, plays, and adult nonfiction books before she discovered her true voice as a writer in books for young people.
