Author Mike Wade Visits!
We had a special visitor to our school today…Mike Wade, the author of And Then It Happened series. He made us laugh and taught us about the writing process. Did you know he used to be a prison guard?
Mike really tried to make the students understand that truly anyone can be a writer. He only started writing in his early 40s and is now in his 50s. You can start writing at any age! He also stressed the importance of revision. He said the average number of times he revises is 7 times. Wow!
Mike has now written a total of 13 books and luckily our class has them all! Our school library does too. His stories are suitable for anyone who likes a good laugh. His characters, Gordon, Paulo, and I are always up for challenges and anything that sounds like trouble!
If you’ve never read a Mike Wade book, give it a try! You won’t regret it.
