News just in from deep in the heart of Texas … I am today’s Featured Sweetheart. What an honor to be in such great company as Jen Robinson, Mitali Perkins, Sally Kruger, and Kelly Holmes, to name a few recent honorees! [Links go to their Featured Sweetheart interview.]
The Texas Sweethearts is a collaborative website and blog run by three Austin, Texas authors of books for children and teens: Jessica Lee Anderson; P. J. Hoover (blog); and Jo Whittemore (blog). Through their regular Featured Sweetheart feature, Jessica, P.J., and Jo introduce us to people who are passionate AS readers and ABOUT books.
Now, you’ve got to remember that these gals are from Texas, so the questions are big and tough … like “If you could make a wish for kids and reading, what would it be?” Stop over to see my answer … and add your wishes, too!
Last but not least? How did I get to be a Featured Sweetheart? Because I participated in the conversation. As Greg Pincus (The Happy Accident) often reminds us, comments are part of the “conversation” that add depth to the solitary function of blogging. Taking the time to read a post and leave a thoughtful comment can be an introduction that leads to a dialogue … or in my case, an interview.
Thank you again, ladies!
