Betsy Schow, who lived for "Odyssey time" in her gifted and talented program in elementary school, used her talent in Spontaneous to become a internationally published author. Her work and story have been featured on the TODAY Show, Wall St. Journal and news radio. Her latest book, Spelled, is being hailed for it's creativity and clever twists. With her Odyssey training, it's no surprise she learned to see characters, plots, and settings in a fresh way that no one else would. Now she visits schools in between projects and she passes on those skills to next generation of writers--by bringing a Spontaneous verbal problem or two to get the ball rolling.
