2. What is your latest or upcoming book about? I have had two toddler board books out in the last year. Each book is on a single color (Little Pink Book and Little Black Book) with rhymes and life size photos with sensory components that are about the individual color. For example: scratch and smell licorice, or feel the actual wool on a pink ball of yarn.
3. What inspired you to write it? With so much on the screen, children need more sensory exploring in their everyday lives.
4. What did you do before you became an author? I did book design, mostly special trade illustrated books.
5. How does it feel to be a published author? I feel incredibly lucky, I also have a supportive agent, and I work hard!
6. Any advice for struggling writers? Don't talk yourself out of anything, if you want to publish a book, keep on. I would also emphasize the importance of constantly being aware of what is being published.
7. Where do you see book publishing heading? Well, it is in a deep transition as we all know, so it is impossible to say. I would like to say there will be a backlash, and the bricks and mortar bookstores will be more of a presence. I am a book person, so I see the e-books continuing to evolve into something else, but books will always be books...
