Marisa Conducts Her First Interview

Marz is working on a book project.  "A Book By Me"  is  written by children, for children.  Marisa is writing "A Blessed Life," a story about Dr. Paul Hauk, who was a part of the U.S. Army that helped to liberate many jews.  Someday this story, along with many others in a series by young authors, will be distributed in schools and museums across the nation and abroad.

She had the chance to meet with Dr. Hauk today and conduct an interview.

Here is Dr. Hauk telling Marisa and my friend Lori about the battlefield and where he had to drive.
He was born in Germany, moved to the U.S. as a young child, and ended up serving in the U.S. Army and fought in Germany.  Becuase he knew the language, he drove high ranking U.S. officials around during the war.

Here is Dr. Hauk explaining how things weren't "that dangerous."
Excepting for that time he remembers almost being bombed.

Here is my young author with the main character of her book.
What an opportunity for her to learn about the publishing process, from start to finish.

People have been telling me lately that she is taking after her mom with all of this writing and talent.  That is very nice to say; however, I know better. 
Because the truth is, I hope to be just like her when I grow up.
