How do you say your last name?


Break up the syllables, Mil-us-ich, that might make it easier to say. Names are hard, so don't worry if you make a mistake when you're prouncing it. 


Did you always know you wanted to be an author?


Becoming a writer came later for me. I didn't start writing stories until a few years after I started working as an itinerant teacher for the visually impaired. 


Where do you get your ideas?


I get many of my ideas from my students and when my children were little I got ideas from them. I also get ideas from things I hear or learn about and sometimes from my imagination.


What are your hobbies?


I love to read and imagine. I enjoy learning new things.  Right now I'm brushing up my Spanish and American Sign Language  skills. 

 What is your favorite book?


It's hard to pick out just one.  I love The Elegance of a Hedgehog, The Cat Who Saved Books, The Hobbit, A Wrinkle in Time, Charlottes' Web, A Bad Case of Stripes and the list could go on and on.
