In celebration of our April 2008 issue dedicated to Pop Fiction hitting newsstands this week, here's a quote from our cover subject Laurell. K. Hamilton:
I've been writing stories since I was 12. Writer's Digest was one of my first teachers, actually. In the high school library, there were stacks of them. My teacher handed them to me by the armload; she knew I was interested in writing. This is how I learned to submit professionally.
