Check this out: Cynthia Smith just posted an interview with me on her weblog Cynsations.
Cynthia is a wonderful interviewer. She asked the kind of questions that brought out stories about the book, the writing of it, and the responses of individual readers. It’s the best interview on the book yet.
If you are at all into books for young readers, her blog and website are well worth bookmarking. Cynthia puts up two or three author interviews each month and posts news and opinions about books for kids and young adults. Her website is full of goodies including an archive of her author interviews. I hope mine will be there soon, too.
She’s also a wonderful author herself and has written several books that circulate from my bookshelves and are listed in my bibliographies of recommended books.
To my absolute delight, Strong at the Heart has been listed for the 2007 Kentucky Bluegrass Award, Master List for grades 9-12. High school students throughout Kentucky will have the chance to read from this list of fifteen books and then vote for their favorite. Right now I have a very warm spot in my heart for Kentucky!
