The Birthday Mystery (Cam Jansen, book 20) by David A Adler
I sent it ro Random House, my first story and my first submission, and after six months of consideration, it was accepted for publication. The editor was impressed at how I had captured the voice of a young child in all my questions. That was easy! I just listened, remembered, and wrote. Then, as a math teacher, I wrote a few math books for Thomas Y. Crowell, now a division of HarperCollins. In I married and in our first son was born. I was granted a child-care leave from teaching and while I was caring for my infant son, I created Cam Jansen. Happily those books led to many others.
I begin with story idea, with the main characters, and the setting. For me writing involves constant revisions.
