Norma Fox Mazer died Friday, October 16. YA novelist, teacher, friend to many in the world of children’s literature. Though I never met her, her influence more than rippled into my small corner of the children’s book writing world, not least because her books, along with Cynthia Voight’s, were among the first I read when I was a newbie writer, discovering the world of YA fiction. Her work was like a green light to my own.
