Gail Carson Levine Interview

Thanks to all those who entered our contest.

Last week the Literati, the group of aspiring teen authors I help mentor, had the honor of meeting and interviewing Gail Carson Levine, author of Ella Enchanted and others books for young readers. Emily of the wonderful book review blog, Emily's Reading Room, was kind enough to arrange and record an interview, which among other things, talks about the worst rejection Gail Carson Levine received. Ms. Levine's new book, Fairies and the Quest for Neverland, is available in stores now.

Suzette Saxton writes books for tots, teens, and in-betweens. She is represented by Suzie Townsend of FinePrint Literary.

Those videos were such a pleasure to watch--although I felt like crying when she mentioned the teacher who called her pedestrian.
