Show Notes

Episode #19
Guest: Tanya Lee Stone
Next week: David Ezra Stein (of Interrupting Chicken fame!)

This is a great show! Yes, I’m prejudiced, but c’mon – we talk about…

-how Tanya has written over 90 books for kids (don’t you want to know how?)
-about people who want to mutilate their Barbie dolls (check out this link for more about that from the Body Image Council)
-how one should research a non-fiction book
-plunging vs. plotting and why one might work over another, depending on what kind of book you’re working on
-what Nancy Perl wrote about Almost Astronauts
