Wonderful to meet the eloquent and enthusiastic Elle McNicoll, author of A KIND OF SPARK, at the powerHouse on 8th Middle Grade Lit Camp for her first US event! I love both of the covers—the US version and the original in the UK!

Elle explained that the book was quite personal. "It’s not a memoir, but it’s about a Scottish neuro-divergent girl and I am a Scottish neuro-divergent girl.”

Loved hearing New York Times best-selling author Gayle Forman discuss her MG debut FRANKIE & BUG with powerHouse on 8th virtual Lit Camp!

In writing this book, Gayle said, "I wanted to reinforce what I already saw. That kids can step up for each other."

Awesome to meet @mikethayer author of THE DOUBLE LIFE OF DANNY DAY, at the powerHouse on 8th Middle Grade Lit Camp!

Mike shared his writing strategy, “All of my story ideas come from two questions. Wouldn’t it be awesome if ... and If only I could …”

Wonderful to discuss WEIRD KID with author Greg Van Eekhout at the powerHouse on 8th Middle Grade Lit Camp! Greg said, "Writing is a conversation. First, I tell myself the story, but it isn’t complete until a kid reads it.”

Loved meeting veteran and debut MG authors at the powerHouse on 8th Lit Camp! At the final session this spring, Sarah Allen, Author of BREATHING UNDERWATER, shared, “No one can tell your story and no one can tell it the way you want to tell it."
