Although there are many authors in the world, it really does take talent to write an engaging and entertaining story. Even though lots of authors can do this, I was very impressed with the way Toni Buzzeo writes. At the Marriot Hotel in Denver, Mrs. Buzzeo signed books for her fans and talked about her writing, but when she wasn’t busy, I got the chance to interview her. When she creates her stories in her hometown of Buckston, Maine, she likes to base her main characters off of herself, like in her book, Our Librarian won’t Tell us Anything!. Mrs. Skorupski in the book is actually her. “I did really get inspired by working as a librarian because I was around books all the time. Then I thought that I should write kid’s books because I was around them all of the time. I also really like to write about library situations because I know all about them! Although Mrs. Buzzeo is a very talented writer, that’s not the only activity she enjoys. “I make jewelery, I crochet, I sew, I read like crazy of course, and I love to travel.” She is a very creative person who believes in sharing writing with peers and taking ideas out of personal experiences for books. “I think that you should write a lot, even things that you might not make a story out of. If you see something, just write it down; observe,” Mrs. Buzzeo suggested. Besides her humorous stories and creative hobbies, Mrs. Buzzeo also had a very unusual childhood. “I was an only child for 9 years, and then my parents took in a foster child named Marianne. It was hard to adapt, but I managed. After caring for Marianne, though, my mom gave birth to three more siblings! It was crazy!” Mrs. Buzzeo told me. Unusual experiences and an open imagination are two qualities of a good writer. Like Mrs. Buzzeo says, “Try new things to see if you like them. If you never try, you will never achieve!”
