Hi there, guess whose been working her little tusch off so hard preparing for Random House/Knopf editor Kelly Delaney's and my fab free webinar on an often overlooked writing technique, Whose Story Is It? Point of View and Perspective Secrets this Thursday January 5th, and our upcoming e-course on writing children's picture books starting on the 9th, that I didn't write a blog post. Eeek. So instead, I'm going to link you to the fabulous Kathy Temean's blog, Writing and Illustrating: Sharing Information About Writing and Illustrating for Children. If you don't already know this blog you should because it's pretty awesome.
First up is a series of interviews that Kathy did with Kelly, my partner in creative crime right here:

Lastly, here is my most recent post for Kathy's blog, which is a short excerpt from the course on creating memorable characters right here.
