I love reading all kinds of books. I usually have about ten books going at any one time – books about the past, the present, novels, non-fiction, poetry, mythology, religion, etc. Reading is my favorite thing to do.

I discovered writing children’s books was a way to keep living in my imagination like a child. So I wrote a number of books before I started ‘Magic Tree House.’ Then, once I got that, I never looked back because I could be somewhere different in every single book.

  3. Three great quotes, Karen…I’m still trying to get my head round her having ten books on the go at once!! I manage a couple at the same time if I’m lucky!😀

    • Three winners! Thank you very much, Annika.
      Twenty years ago, I managed 6-7 at once; they had to be of different genres and at least two languages, though. Nowadays I consider myself lucky if I manage 4 at the same time. 😀

  4. All good quotes but I have to go with this one. “I get ideas from my own personal experiences, from my imagination, and from my research and from old stories.”
