Went to SeaWorld--San Antonio this weekend with Anne who was doing research on dolphins.
I love that about this job. You get to find out about whatever ties into the book and often that's naturally just whatever intrigues you (because those things simmer in your subconscious until the related plot/character idea pops out).
And sometimes you get to find out about whatever's in the subconscious of the other writers in your life.
Anne is the author of T Is For Texas and Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story, illustrated by Kurt Cyrus.
By the way, those with an interest in Jamaican concept/holiday books (and educational work books) may want to surf over to SunZone Books.
Sending out a big hug today to LaShun!
