Interview with Katherine Marsh, author of Jepp, Who Defied The Stars

One of my favourite books of 2012 was Jepp, Who Defied The Stars, by the amazing Katherine Marsh. And I wasn’t alone in my love! Jepp was named a Wall Street Journal Best Children’s book of 2012, and a 2012 New York Times Notable Children’s Book! It received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and School Library Journal, and trust me, the list goes on. I truly, truly loved Jepp. I mean, I finished this book at 2:30am with […]

Erin Bowman Mine is Scrivener, hands down. I don’t know how I wrote before that program. It has literally changed my life. (Also, I must include my writer friends. Because seriously, I would be lost (and completely insane) if it weren’t for the […]


Interview with Literary Agent Sara Crowe

Today I’m so very thrilled to be hosting an interview with Sara Crowe, literary agent extraordinaire! Okay, so I’m a bit biased because Sara is my agent, but her bio really does speak for itself… Sara represents children’s fiction (and adult fiction and non fiction) at Harvey Klinger, Inc. Her clients include NYT Bestselling author Jonathan Maberry, USA Today Bestselling author Jeff Hirsch, as well as Nina LaCour, Michael Northrop, Lisa Schroeder, Kristen Tracy, and Dan […]
