Story Time Sunday!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone!!! I'm happy to inform you that I have now written almost 50k words for my autobiography. That's more than I've written for anything so I'm feeling pretty accomplished right now.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez and the Magic of His Love and Cholera-focused Novel

I am not a sucker for romantic novels. I did not even read any of the Sweet Valley High series when other teens of my age had fallen head over heels for them. However, like any other human beings, I have a case of exception to my own convention.

Book Review of Flower Net, by Lisa See

I'm sorry everyone, but I feel like all my reviews have been negative as of lately. This one is no different, and that's why I'm going to read something this month that I know I already love. Enough about my, "woe is me" act. All that matters is that Flower Net became (quickly) boring to me. So without further adieu - a review! ...more

What Makes Amazing Children’s Illustrations?: An Editor’s Perspective

There’s little more enchanting than a beautifully illustrated children’s book. Abigail Samoun, co-founder of Red Fox Literary and featured mom has a roster full of amazing illustrators. I love to visit her site just to look at the gorgeous illustration work. I asked Abi what she looks for when searching for a children’s book illustrator. Why thank you, Larissa. It’s wonderful to hear that you enjoy looking at the art. When I look at an illustrator’s portfolio, I’m mainly looking for three things:...more
