We are currently working on author interviews for the 3rd season of A Literary Tour of South Carolina. This week we traveled to Lexington, SC, to interview Fran Rizer. Fran is a former classroom teacher. Prior to her retirement she was teaching creating writing in a Midlands high school. Fran now writes the Callie Parrish Mystery Series with such fun titles as A Tisket, A Tasket, A Fancy Stolen Basket and Casket Case.
On Friday, we went to Charleston to interview Jonathan Miller, creator of the Sammy the Wonder Dachshund series. Jonathan illustrates his own books creating the illustrations with construction paper. No they are not just simple flat pictures but intricate designs using as many as 70 pieces of paper and taking 30-40 hours to complete. Jonathan is available for school visits. You can contact him through his web site.
More interviews to come for our third season.
