Thanks Harold.

Ana, I self taught with my wacom Cintiq (if I can do it anyone can, believe me:)  and there are a great number of youtube video's on tablet Illustration. Also on the Wacom site itself.  Lynda.com offers a number of on-line courses as well, for example https://www.lynda.com/Art-Illustration-tutorials/Wacom-Essential-Training-Revision/546063-2.html
I'm afraid I don't have a name of a local teacher but you might take a look at colleges in your area that allow for evening lessons (not credited courses) Problem is most will be for design. If you can find a college that offers animation courses, they may have something.

I think she's in LA area, not San Diego, but Deborah Norse Lattimore is an amazing instructor in both illustration and writing for children. You may want to check out her courses to see if any might be close to you.

I feel  like I've read one or two in the past year, but I can't call them to mind. So I'm commenting so I'll get reminded about this ...

Or I might be thinking of YA, where I think this is more common. You might find them useful as mentor texts, if that's what you are seeking--you could think about how you would do it differently. Laurie Halse Anderson's "The Incredible Knife of Memory" is one I've read.

Ah, you hadn't said that you were also an illustrator. That being the case, I would suggest that you follow the standard process for author/illustrators when submitting, which is to submit the manuscript AND a dummy with the text laid out and sketches in place. If you're not sure if they'll accept that for the contest, I suggest you ask. Lee and Low is a small company.  They'll respond. And if you don't get a response, let me know.  I know people there.
