    In His Own Words I can t remember when I first started writing fiction it was shortly after I began reading fiction, I m sure I ve been a voracious reader for as long as I can remember As a teenager, I read a lot of the same kinds of books I m writing the John R Tunis sports stories, for example I also read a lot of history when I was young and I still do now It s always fascinated me When I was a high school senior, I was offered two jobs, both of the apprentice sort One was in a commercial artist s studio, on a recommendation from my art teacher The other was in the sports department of the local newspaper, following work on the school paper I took the sportswriting job For four years I worked for the Arkansas Gazette while attending the University of Arkansas, first at Little Rock and then at Fayetteville, covering football, baseball, basketball, boxing, golf, tennis everything that made up the sports page After graduation, I joined the Associated Press as a newsman at Little Rock and later worked in AP bureaus in Detroit, Birmingham, and New Orleans Eventually, I was Chief of Bureau in Little Rock, Indianapolis, Chicago, and Tokyo, Japan I retired from the Associated Press in 1993 and now live in Evansville, Indiana For me, writing fiction is fun, relaxing, and satisfying an enjoyable change of pace, a recharging of the batteries My first young adult novel, Running Scared, got started one night in a motel room in Champaign, Illinois, when I had nothing else to do Before long, the story had me in its grip The creation of the thing was a fascinating experience I liked the characters I liked leading them through their problems to their triumphs I kept going until one day it was finished I did not set out to write for young people Looking back, I think it was something of a blessing that 1 did not As I wrote Running Scared, I imagined the reader as an adult, but after it was finished, it seemed appropriate for young readers The result, I think, was that the story did not talk down to teenagers In every book I ve written since, I ve tried to keep the same approach.
