Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I am working on two projects; the first is similar to Genies in Jammies, the second is more of a classic children's storybook inspired by a story my mother developed when I was a wee tot. To drop a hint - I had to really bone up on my lion-drawing skills for this one.
Who are your favorite authors?
For children's work, it spans. I have always liked authors that write intelligently for their young audiences, even speaking a bit past their current level to encourage curiosity and development. Shel Silverstein is tops for me. 'Where The Sidewalk Ends' was one of the first books I made sure we had on hand when we made our own people. I am a big fan of Maurice Sendak & Jan Brett. Recently I fell in love with George Saunders ('The Very Persistent Gappers of Frip'). I also have a soft spot for Dee Lillegard for 'The Day the Daisies Danced'. And anything by Neil Gaiman has my vote at all times.
