How Poetry Inspires my Picture Books: Author Interview at Cynsations

I had the pleasure of sitting down for an interview with Linda Joy Singleton, a reporter for CYNSATIONS, where we chatted about how my love of poetry influences my picture books, the turning points of my writing career, and my out-of-the-box promotion adventures.

I attribute my love of rhyme to my maternal grandmother, who shared her poetry with me when I was a child and to an uncle who taught me to rhyme on the fly as we danced and clapped and giggled.
