I love to write picture books! Especially informational-fiction in rhyme. How is THAT for a specialization.  I also write for the educational market, mostly photo-illustrated non-fiction, but also some poetry, fantasy, and even a memoir in verse. I'm always interested in hearing from fellow writers!
