  1. Hi, omg I love your work!! I’m in 8th grade and I’m using your article about spider stowaways in Toyotas as a resource in my science abstract 😀 I love how you take cool topics, then make them even more interesting! I want to be a writer or journalist when I grow up and I find your work very inspiring(: Btw, I (used to) have a border collie named Sadie too!!
