THE YARN podcast!

I am beyond excited to be in the inaugural season of the new kid lit podcast series by Colby Sharp and Travis Jonker!

"Part interviews, part documentary, our concept for Season 1 is to look at one book from all angles. You usually hear from the author of a story, but we wanted to also hear from the people behind the scenes – the editor, the cover designer, the colorist, and more." Jonker

And what book are they looking at?!?!!
