Hmmm....I picture my readers as kids from 8 to 92 and above 92 not to exclude the life marathoners. (That's right I said marathoners) I picture that age range being able to follow the slam bang action and wonderment I hope to provide the world with my writing. Nestled around a bright Christmas tree wrapped up in a blanket immersed in the world I have created, is where I picture my reader.
Of course it would be an absolute joy to watch someone read my stories to see if they have an intense look, a crumpled forehead, or wide eyes. I just want to evoke emotion and provide the brain with scintillating prose. My hope is that when the readers have finished one of my books that they feel that there time was well spent. I hope that they would want more.
In conclusion, I don't write books just for kids, I write books for the kid in all of us. So the more the merrier.
