Those objects eventually became sculptures, just as his considerable interests and experiences eventually came to life in his stories. The recipient of both a Newbery Award for JOYFUL NOISE, his book of poetry for two voices, and the Scott O’Dell Award for BULLRUN, his multicharacter account of the Civil War, Fleischman lives in Monterey, California, where he dabbles in music and plays bocce with his pals.
