Armstrong is the author of The American Story, as well as other fiction and nonfiction titles for children. Here's a funny exchange from the interview:
- "AUTHORLINK: What's the best part of being a children's author? The worst?"
- "ARMSTRONG: Best part is the privilege of being the author of a child's first favorite book. The worst part is ignorance of the general public about what being a children's book author means. How many times have I said, "No, I don't start with a moral and write a story to fit!"? AAAAGGGGHHHHH!"
Head on over to read the entire interview when you have the chance. It's well worth it.
