Hi all! Thank you Elizabeth for having me today.
I was directed to your fabulous Banana Peel series by one of my readers who commented on this blog post in which I tell the story of a particularly horrific critique. Plus, it happened when I was a wee babe . . . okay, not so wee, but fairly new to this whole writer roller coaster.
Did I let it stop me??
No. I did not. I’m a little tougher and wiser because of it, and I’m happy to say that my debut picture book PUZZLED BY PINK which I both wrote and illustrated was released by Viking Children’s Books in April. It’s kind of a “Wednesday Addams meets Fancy Nancy” story.
“I’ve never brought books,” I say. “I mean, you’re a book store.”
We stood out in the parking lot a little longer, just kind of staring.
