Three Questions for Some Amazing #mglit Authors

Today, I'm stopping by Middle Grade Minded to share my new YouTube channel, "Three Questions," featuring interviews with some of my favorite creators. I recently had the pleasure of speaking with #mglit author Saadia Faruqi about her work as an interfaith activist, writing for MG vs. early readers and more!

You can also check out my interview with Traci Sorell. Cherokee Nation citizen and award-winning author Traci Sorell writes fiction and nonfiction books, short stories and poems for children. She discusses her work to center contemporary Cherokee stories, her experience co-writing INDIAN NO MORE and her upcoming biography of Mary Golda Ross.

Looking to celebrate spooky stories? I sat down just before Halloween with Lorien Lawrence (THE STITCHERS) and Josh Roberts (THE WITCHES OF WILLOW COVE). They discuss everything from the writing process to their real-life spooky experiences.

Other recent guests include Christina Li (CLUES TO THE UNIVERSE), Jacqueline West (BOOKS OF ELSEWHERE), Heidi Lang (WHISPERING PINES) and many more! For the writers out there, you will also find a growing section of videos on writing and publishing tips. To view all of the interviews, check out "Three Questions."
