Sarah Wilson, Me and the Gang

 Sarah Wilson (nickname = Susie) and I led middle and high school students in a mystery and suspense writing workshop yesterday at the Clayton Library.  Students wrote terrific tales of terror and mystery.  Fabulous talent in this group!  Susie and I wish WE were this good when we were this age.  Some students even are writing novels!

Continue writing, kids!
