RICHLAND, WA - The author of "Don't You Dare Read This" and "Running Out of Time" joined the Cavalcade of Authors event Wednesday night in Richland. 

Margaret Peterson Haddix made an appearance at the Richland Public Library for an open discussion of her entire embodiment of work. 

She has written 30 books with more to come, tailoring her books toward children and teenagers. 

Her work is showcased on the New York Times Best Seller List and the American Library Association Annual Book List. 

Maddix talked about her way of story creation and why she has the best job in the world. 

"Sometimes what I like the most is getting to make stuff up. My first book came out in 1995 so this is like the 20th anniversary of my first book coming out and of course I started writing it before that, so you know I've been doing this for a long time," says Haddix. 

Haddix will also be at the Barnes and Noble store at the Columbia Center Mall in Kennewick Thursday afternoon from 4 to 6 p.m. signing books and meeting the public.
