Advice From the Experts

A.M. Howell - Author of Mysteries at Sea: Peril on the Atlantic


"I always remember my agent saying that to be an author you need to 'read, read read, write, write, write, edit, edit, edit.' That's kind of stuck with me over these past few years as pretty good advice."

Sarah Webb - Author of Ask Amy Green Series


"My advice for new children's writers is to just keep writing. Read contemporary children's books, attend courses, go to talks, yes. But sitting down at your table or desk and actually writing is the most important thing."
