Newbery author Linda Sue Park

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everyone in the group, published and unpublished) 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!
