A Chat With Cheri Cowell

, by

Greetings from Marti Pieper in Mount Dora, Florida, where we’ve had lots of rain every day this week. And we’re not complaining, since drought conditions have led to increased fire danger.

Tips from the Pros: Katrina Cassel

, by

Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! Today I have the honor of interviewing scuba-diving, ukulele-playing author Katrina Cassel, who writes nonfiction for girls and preteens. Because if you write for children, you have to stay young at heart! Katrina, how did you get into writing? I always enjoyed writing but never thought it could be a career, so I went into teaching.
