Frequently Asked Questions How did I get started?
This may sound strange, but the whole Oscar Indigo story started when I saw a guy at a baseball game with a stopwatch. Of course, the one sport in which you don't need a watch is baseball, because in baseball, time doesn't matter. You just keep playing until somebody wins, no matter how long it takes. So I started imagining what this guy could possibly be up to.
And then it became obvious.
He was involved in a plot to destroy the universe! And ps: I modeled Eleanor Ethel Ellington on my grandmother. Where do I write?
I write at the kitchen table and in the sunroom and on the couch and at the coffee shop. First, I stare into space and dream about things, and then I jot an outline in my notebook, after which I write my chapters in the notebook. Then I type everything into my laptop.
And fiddle with it for weeks and months and years. Do I have any pets? What was one of my favorite books? The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper. I read it when I was eleven, and was fascinated to think that a kid my age could be so important in the overall scheme of things!
