A few weeks ago, I was contacted by a very enterprising student at Rush City High School in Minnesota, who grilled me on various aspects of Pinned, particularly why I chose to end the novel as I did. I come to find out that he was trying to get an informational 'leg up' on his classmates, as Pinned has been assigned reading for the school's Sports Literature class (part of the English Literature curriculum) for the past few years!
What an absolute thrill!
I then contacted Ms. Mazzuca, the school English teacher, to tell her how honored I was, and that I would be more than willing to do a future Skype session with the class to discuss my novels, getting published, and writing, in general. It is something I look forward to!
Here is the class' final project:
