Hi, everyone! I am incredibly honored to be the very first author featured on the newly created WISCONSIN WRITES AUTHOR VIDEO SERIES. This interview chat is created by Wisconsin public schools for students to hear directly from authors about how they do what they do. There are two segments: the first is on my writing process, and the second covers many topics, including my approach to subject matter, the role of research, editing, feedback from other writers, and advice to students. I hope you enjoy it, and please share widely with the writers (young and old) in your life!
