Frequently Asked Questions
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.
