Today I want to introduce you to the author of some of my new favorite picture books, Camille Andros.

Camille is a writer, a traveler, a former EMT, and a mom of six. Yep, six. (So obviously, we’re kindred spirits, since I have six, too.) 😉

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • about her writing process and how she makes time to write
  • how deceptively simple picture book writing appears, when it really isn’t so simple at all
  • a positively serendipitous story about her travels in Greece…

I also answer a listener question about… how to determine whether a book is one you want to invest in before you read it.

Quotes to remember:

“It’s sort of deceptive how difficult that must be to pull off a story in so few words, and to do it really, really well… which you’ve done with both of yours.” – Sarah Mackenzie
