Would You Rather MOVE TO A NEW CITY OR TOWN EVERY WEEK Or NEVER BE ABLE TO LEAVE THE CITY OR TOWN YOU WERE BORN IN?
This may have been the toughest question for these children’s…
Ravenclaw all the way! I was surprised (somewhat sheepish) to discover I will be staying in the Apollo cabin!
Easy – I have to write two to three drafts before I really have a clue what my story is about!
I have lots of writers friends in the sweet sixteen and swanky seventeens debut author groups!
Specifically, Janet Sumner Johnson has been a source of advice along the way, along with Melissa Roske, Kristin L. Gray, Jonathan Rosen, Sally Pla, Dana Middleton, Kathleen Burkinshaw, Kathleen Peacock, Matt Landis, Ali Standish, and too many more to mention. We support each other and share what we’ve learned. And most importantly, they make me laugh!
I feel like Gareth Wronki’s Holly Farb and the Princess of the Galaxy should be a bestseller. I just loved it so much!
I always assume my readers are bright and imaginative, so I try and write in such a way so as not to insult their intelligence! That said, my readers are mostly kids with big hearts and hopes and dreams, so I do my best to leave them with hope.
I love this question! My mascot would be a raccoon. I love them so much and read recently that they can remember how to solve a problem for three years! I could use that kind of savvy when I get to copy edits!
I wrote my first book, It’s a Mystery, Pig-Face! decades ago and stuck it in a drawer. From the time I dug it out, rewrote it, and my agent found a publisher, it was about two years. It was published by SkyPony Press in 2017.
The Frame-Up was much faster – I wrote and revised it in four months and my agent sold it two months later. It was published in 2018 by Greenwillow Books.
My next book, The Copycat, took about 8 months to write and revise, and will be published by Greenwillow Books on March 10, 2020.
The history of this planet is people rushing to say and do things, when a day’s reflection would make all the difference.” The Copycat
For sure Tracy in It’s a Mystery, Pig Face! She’s nosy, loyal, funny, and makes a lot of mistakes!
The central theme in all of my books is this: be true to yourself. Don’t compare yourself to others or try to impress other people. And do the thing that makes you happy, because when you’re happy, you’ll spread happiness to everyone you meet.
