I had the pleasure of interviewing my very cute husband, author Greg Leitich Smith, for Smartwriters.com (click link and scroll to read).
Greg talks about writing companion books, alternating point of view, his diverse casts, writing comedy, and his upcoming projects. He is the author of Ninjas, Piranhas, and Galileo (Little Brown, 2003; paperback, 2005) and Tofu and T. rex (Little Brown, 2005).
The July issue of Smartwriters also includes Writers Retreats and Conferences by Margot Finke; Eureka! A New Crypto-Program for Educators by Edith Hope Fine; and two new Write It Now! competitions.
