Reality for kids

It's been a long time since I've let you in on what I've been up to. I have been writing a lot lately. Afraid that I may lose my way in the process, I've been trying harder and harder to make it work. Someone told me, "Reality is too real."
In other words, "Birdie, you write good books, but no one is going to buy them because the issues are too strong and no one wants to read about kids with problems."
To me, it's all about how bad things can get for a child and making a way out for them. Meet them halfway. Sometimes I wonder if I should keep going...

So, after I write this book, I see where it goes from there... ;)
