The fact that the pilots had to plug in their underwear and risk getting shocked to stay warm made an impression on me. Your visit made me really want to read Under a War Torn Sky.
Thank you so much! You've given me so much to think over and lots of inspiration for my own writing! I definitely was inspired by your lifestyle and your constant, non-stop writing career. Your research, dedication, and immersive style of writing stories and characters were fascinating, especially your spiel about primary sources. Also, I'm still pondering over whether you ate that bug in the field or not!
It was very interesting to hear about her research. She really helped me understand what it was like to be in a fighter plane.
The thing I liked the most was how she described things. I could visualize the setting and physical conflict in my mind. I loved her stories and her description of the planes, and the Christmas story was the best!
I'm very glad she came and shared her story with us. It's always great to meet authors, and it was fun since it was related to our unit. I hope to read her books in the future. (Especially the one about Peggy Schuyler!!!)
