Richard Peck: "All novels are based on an epiphany"

I'm still high from having written my post Richard Peck on the beating heart of what we do as children's writers. So I had to see if any of his speeches were on YouTube. I found this:

At the end of the interview (in case you don't get there because your attention span has been so shortened by hours in front of facebook) the interviewer asks him for one word that captures the role of children's authors, aspiring or published.


He didn't hesitate.


  1. That what brilliant, Candy. Thanks for posting it. What passion he has. In the end that's what it all comes down to, doesn't it?

  2. yes, in this unreliable business, passion is all we can rely on.
