I've also met Dan Yaccarino, author of The Fantastic Undersea Life of Jacques Cousteau. His advice to aspiring authors was to "tell the story with pictures...all that's left to write is the words." He has a blog, too!
Who doesn't love The Great Fuzz Frenzy?! Susan Stevens Crummel, who writes books with her illustrator sister, Janet Stevens, did an amazing read-aloud during a visit to a local bookstore. She was a math teacher for over 30 years before delving into writing children's books.

Amanda M. Thrasher visited our elementary school! Then our district sponsored a book signing at a local bookstore of her book, Mischief in the Mushroom Patch, which is the first installment of the fairy series.
