Episode #11

Subject: Tips on telling a great story

Guest: Dianne de las Casas
Bonus stuff: on the app you’ll get a PDF of Dianne’s prep sheet for schools, and a video of her doing a bandana story

Talking with Dianne de las Casas is always fun- we tend to giggle a lot, but I promise you, we do get to the meat of it!

Find out how to deal with hecklers, figure out what to do with kids who are too scared for your story and more.

I’ve got an exclusive review from Betsy Bird (A Fuse #8 Production) of THE RECRUIT by Robert Muchamore, and some lovely feedback from Grace Lin, Newbery honoree for When the Mountain Meets the Moon. (Thanks, Grace!)

Enjoy, and don’t forget to call in questions TO 888-522-1929 – next month I’ll be having an interview with Deborah Halverson, former Harcourt editor and now award-winning author of books for young readers, including HONK IF YOU HATE ME and BIG MOUTH, and the forthcoming WRITING YOUNG ADULT FICTION FOR DUMMIES.
