Written for adult, read by students

Texas News Today listed its top 10 Books Every Student Should Read: Fiction and Nonfiction

First on the list:

Storyworthy: Engage, Teach, Persuade, and Change Your Life Through the Power of Storytelling

I’m thrilled. While I never envisioned Storyworthy for students, it’s now used in high schools, colleges, and corporate training workshops throughout the country and around the world.

Even more thrilling, my novel, Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend, is used in middle schools and high schools across the country, including my very own daughter’s middle school.

She may actually be reading it next year.

It’s more than I could’ve ever imagined.

This, of course, is not nearly as exciting for Clara. Since I’ve spoken at her school and many of her peers are reading the book, she gets asked about me a lot.

News flash:

Middle school girls do not enjoy walking the halls of their school, continually hearing about their father.

Who knew?
