From the West Coast to Long Island

Suzanne Williams

This morning I sat in my cozy home office and connected through the magic of Skype video with two groups of students at St. Edward the Confessor School in Syosset, NY.  What fun it was to share with them the history behind my picture book, Library Lil, (which was actually illustrated twice), and to talk about my current work on two Greek mythology-related series, Goddess Girls and Heroes in Training, with co-author Joan Holub. I especially enjoyed the Q & A time. Students had great questions ranging from how I came up with names for various characters to how I go about contacting publishers and sending stories out. Colleen Moran, who arranged the visit, set up the technology on her end, and monitored both sessions did a terrific job keeping things humming along. Many thanks to her and to St. Edward students for such an enjoyable visit!
