I’ve just returned from the Texas Book Festival and I am pumped up! This free event is located on and around the capitol building in downtown Austin. While there, I got to meet some very cool children’s book authors. I was even able to ask them, one-on-one, a few questions I have as a new writer with my own manuscript in the works. So, for the last few hours I have been singing the refrain “Now I’ve had the time of my life.” And that’s when I thought of you. I’d love to share some insights these authors revealed about their characters and inspiration. As an avid reader, those details further endear to me a story or character I already love.
The next four posts for this week (and I promise to do my best to get them out this week while it’s fresh on my mind) are: DRUMROLL, please…………….
Tad Hills, author of Rocket the Dog stories
Philip Yates, author of 2 pirate Christmas-themed books
Barney Saltzberg, author of books for pre-school children
Rob Scotton, author of Splat the Cat books
More photos and stories to come–hope you’ll join me.
