I Was a Child Poet. And a Bad One.

In which John shares some of his early writing, including a poem called “Bio Poem” that is well and truly humiliating in its lack of quality. I also discover and share many items from my past, including my old report cards and some Brotherhood 2.0 memorabilia. Also, I celebrate some good news: The Fault in Our Stars has been named one of the ten best books of 2012 by the editors at Amazon: http://t.co/TaDb008x

Check out the de Grummond Collection on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/de-Grummond-Childrens-Literature-Collection/103…

(And yes, this means that any interested researchers will be able to go to the collection and look through dozens of different drafts of each of my novels, read the editorial correspondence between Julie and me, etc. The de Grummond Collection is an amazing resource, and I feel very lucky that my work will be part of it.)
