So why am I sitting here teary eyed? Well, I just typed "The End" on my latest project - my last Nate Rocks book - Nate Rocks the City.
"Are you sure it's the last?" someone asked.
It's time for me to say goodbye to a good friend - one of my babies. When we first me he was only 10 years old and in fourth grade. Now four books later he's 11 and in fifth grade.
We've been through a lot together - a crazy family, rescuing the earth from impending darkness, dinosaur attacks, a crazed classmate, and most recently ninja pigeons and aliens. He's been a lot of fun to be around and at times he hasn't always behaved, but hey, what can you expect from a tween?
Even though I'm saying goodbye, a part of Nate will always be with me. He's taught me a lot about what it means to be a hero, keeping me laughing and entertained every step of the way.
Thank you Nate for everything. I hope you continue to show kids the one thing I truly intended when I started writing your books: READING ROCKS!
Rock on Nate!
