From His Life: Tomie's favorite color is white and his favorite holiday is Christmas. He is 76 years old and still enjoys writing books for children! When he was four, he loved to tell people that when he grew up he wanted to "write stories and draw pictures for books and to sing and tap dance on the stage." He has done all those things!
Advice for Aspiring Writers: Write about what you know. Your own experiences are wonderful. Tomie has written over three dozen books that are autobiographical or "loosely autobiographical."
