Local Author Gets Feedback from Students

Posted:

Fifth grade students at Cathedral School have formed a bond with a local author.

Patti Armstrong visits with students about her second fictional book called "Dear God You Can't Be Serious."

Last year, a student from the class had given her the idea to write it.

Now, Armstrong is back to find out what the students think about the story.

She says their thoughts and ideas are invaluable.

"It inspires me to go deeper into the stories, to make them more real. And I see how they're affecting the audience and so that's something that helps me when I'm writing the book now because I think about the kids, actual kids that I know that have read the books," says Patti Armstrong, Author.

"She took our ideas and turned them into something, like, bigger and better and she turned it all around and she just made these books really interesting," says Hannah Hellman, 5th Grader, Cathedral School.

Armstrong hopes to have the third book of her series available next Spring.

The fifth graders are already giving her ideas on what to name the book.
