Hey, gang.

I wanted to share the behind-the-scenes skinny for the making of ROAR!

This team interview at Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast includes me, illustrator Liz Starin, editor Sylvie Frank, and art director Laurent Linn!

http://blaine.org/sevenimpossiblethings/?p=3921

It offers some insight as to how each person plays such a huge role in the creation of a pb.

I hope you enjoy it!

Thanks Tammi. So interesting. And it's funny that some things are still not settled, like whether the dragons are real. Hee hee. They are.

Hey Tammi, that was an interesting article. Thanks! It's always fun to learn about the behind-the-scenes process.
Your editor, Sylvie Frank, has recently agreed to present at our June conference in Poughkeepsie.  Now I'm doubly excited to meet her! She sounds great!
