Jennifer Armstrong interview

Check out Susan VanHecke's interview with Jennifer Armstrong for

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.
