I love a good party, Dionna!
Me too! Do tell. How did you find your way into becoming a kidlit author and why do you love it?
Even as a kid, I was always writing stories. In college every creative project I did ended up being written for children, and when I realized the Vermont College of Fine Arts offered an MFA program in Writing for Children and Young Adults, I was off to the races! I write picture books through middle grade, and love that kids in those age demographics are still so ready to believe in magic and to embrace the impossible.
"Embrace the impossible." Love that! What project of the heart are you working on?
I’m working on a couple of silly picture books, and a new middle grade fantasy (I have a never ending list of upcoming projects). I’m also developing some fun animation projects.
What do you love about working with Kelly Dyksterhouse of Raven Quill Literary?
I love everything about working with Kelly! She loves her authors and their work, and LOVES being an agent. She's also so incredibly smart when it comes to editing a manuscript. She's a very editorial agent, and her suggestions always elevate my vision for what I'm writing and make the story stronger.
Kelly's editorial skills certainly do rock kidlit socks! Thanks so much for participating in my blog party!
Happy to be here!
