Author Visits Homer Intermediate School

Students at Homer Intermediate School recently learned about perseverance when author Daniel Jude Miller stopped by for a visit.
 
Miller, who is known for his “Monsters in Manhattan” book series, spoke to students about what it takes to become a published author. Aside from writing, Miller also illustrates, designs and publishes his books.
 
“Writing and illustrating is just like anything else,” said Miller. “If you practice a little, you’ll get a little better. But if you practice a lot, you’ll get a lot better.”
 
Miller said when he begins writing a new book, he takes his time and understands that it will take months to complete. Miller also said that no book has ever been written on the first try.
 
Miller then read some of his published work, including “Bruce the Spruce,” which tells the tale of a magical friendship between a girl and her favorite tree.
