Rosemary Carter wrote the popular 'Roberto' series. She spoke about her writing technique with elementary, middle, and high school students.
Carter began teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages in the early 90's. She created the series to do much more than teach English. She wanted to create a character that immigrant children could relate to.
"I started writing the 'Roberto' series when I was still teaching because there was not a lot of original literature out there for the children that really depicted their place in life," says Carter.
Along with penning the stories, Carter also self-publishes the Roberto books. She says book number three is in the works.
