Here I am talking about STAINED, why I write the books I do, the need for diverse books, and strong girls and emotionally strong boys in books and the media. And I mentioned #WeNeedDiverseBooks, everyone needing to see themselves reflected in books, and how important books dealing with painful issues are to some readers. And how much I love my reader letters! They are another reminder of why I write what I write—as are the readers who come up to me after a talk with tears in their eyes or wanting a hug. I appreciate you all!
