The year I joined RACWI (Rochester Area Children's
Writer's and Illustrators) Linda Sue, a member of the
group, won the Newbery (2002) for A Single Shard.
Since then Linda Sue has inspired me (and I'll bet,
everyone in the group, published and unpublished)
with her talent, warmth, intelligence, and unbounded
energy. She continuously helps others hone their
writing skills and shares what she has learned. I found
this section of her website about writing helpful.
There was a article in the Democrat and Chronicle
recently about Linda Sue that illustrates her world now
after winning the Newbery. Whew! She sure is busy!
