BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. -- New York Times best-selling “Bad Kitty” author and illustrator Nick Bruel met second- and third-grade students from Todd Elementary School in Briarcliff Manor.

At the meeting, which took place Feb. 8, he revealed how he gets his ideas for stories: “I think of the titles first.”

According to Bruel, thinking of a story title helps his brain come up with the story. He also shared that “the secret to writing stories is to always ask yourself questions.”

Students put these ideas into practice by creating a story together, prompted by Bruel’s questions.

He encouraged the budding authors to incorporate feelings and emotions to bring their story to life.

The visit also included tips from the illustrator about how to draw the title character.
