Wow! I'm a FIVE CENTURY Writer!
I was thinking the other day about the fact that my first historical novel for kids (The Riddle of Penncroft Farm) was set in the 20th Century and the 18th Century. My second historical novel for kids (A Buss from Lafayette) is set in the 19th century with lots of information about the 18th. My third historical novel for kids (A Scalp on the Moon, which I'm working on now) is set in the 17th century.
I said to my husband, "Wow! That means I will have written about four different centuries: the 17th, 18th, 19th, and 20th!"
He looked at me.
"Deedy, " he said. "Your Izzies are 21st century elves."
I guess that makes me a Five Century Writer!
