Something New for the New Year

I’m kind of excited about something new I’ll be doing, beginning next month. Laura Backes, of the Children’s Book Insider, has invited me to write a monthly piece on writing middle grade fiction. When she asked, I said yes almost right away and not just because she said my title would be Middle Grade Expert (which is pretty close to Queen of the World). I have found that explaining the writing process to someone else always leaves me better educated. And, heaven knows, I could use the help.

Keep a watch here for more information and links. In the meantime, if you have burning questions, shoot them to me and I’ll do my best to work them into my “expert” answers!
