"One of my favorite proverbs is “less is more,” though that may
seem odd for someone six feet four inches tall, with feet that need
a size thirteen shoe. But I truly believe it. Distilled art forms like
haiku and sculpture by artists like Isamu Noguchi and William Edmondson have always been my favorites. I believe books for young readers fall beautifully into this area as well. The challenge of sharing a story in as few words as possible and with a vital theme inside a “light-hearted” plot is one I sense I’ll always enjoy as surely as I do reading."
