Where do you get your ideas?


That's easy!  All my ideas for writing start with questions.  The questions are usually about things that are interesting or puzzling to me.  But some of my favorite questions are about things that are annoying - or even frightening!

Ever since I was a little kid, I've wanted to know how things work.  And I was especially interested in living things.  

How do flies walk up walls?  Why don't spiders stick to their own webs?  

How do fish breathe?  




What kind of blood do bugs have?   How do snakes move?   Why do people get fevers when they get sick? 

Investigating questions like these is still one of my favorite things.  I read books about them, I look them up on the Internet, and I talk to other people who like to figure things out.  

One of the reasons I wrote the Andrew Lost books was to share some of my favorite investigations with kids.  Another reason is that I get to continue my own investigations!

I hope you will have as much fun with Andrew's adventures as I do.  And I hope you will find things that you want to investigate and have adventures of your own!  

As I looked into lots of questions, I found out something really interesting.   Click here to find out what that is!
