Well our summer break is finally over and I thought it would be a great way to kick off our return with a new Author Spotlight. Melissa Wiley is a fellow SCBWI San Diego member and had three, yes three, books launch in August. So grab a cup of coffee as we shine the spotlight on Melissa.
Melissa Wiley is the author of more than a dozen books for kids and teens, including The Prairie Thief, Inch and Roly Make a Wish, Fox and Crow Are Not Friends, and the Martha and Charlotte Little House books. She lives in San Diego with her husband and their six kids. Melissa blogs about her family’s reading life at Here in the Bonny Glen and is a contributing writer for GeekMom.
WOTS: What was your road to publication?
WOTS: Describe your studio or usual work space for us.
MW: Oooh, it depends! I’m a procrastinator by nature but my circumstances don’t allow for it–I have to jump on writing time when I have it, or seventeen other things will crowd in to chew up the time. I have a mighty terror of missing a deadline. It has only happened once.
