Debut children's picture book author Varsha Bajaj is on my mind today. She's the author of How Many Kisses Do You Want Tonight? (Little Brown, 2003). Varsha and I met when I guest taught a class on writing children's books that was led by Kathi Appelt and Debbie Leland. I got to know each other better at a dinner at last year's TLA conference in San Antonio with Greg and his editor, Amy Hsu.
I look forward to more great writing from Varsha in the future!
