Blog hops are a thing, apparently. (Since I am just realizing this, perhaps “were a thing” is more accurate? I’m usually a bit behind on social media trends.) Here, gone, no matter. Blog hops are fun, and I’m going to play along …
Back in March, Kathy Erskine tagged me for a hop in which I got to share a bit about my Spring 2014 book, Handle With Care. (Here’s that post, if you missed it.) Last week, Sarah Albee tagged me in a similar blog hop meme. (Here’s her post.) Here’s the deal this time around: first, I tell you a little bit about Sarah, then I tell you a little bit about my next book.
See? Kinda fun. Especially if you are into children’s nonfiction. And guess what? Today is Nonfiction Monday! (Maybe I am actually a social media guru? Ha.)
So, what can I tell you about Sarah?
- For starters, she sometimes goes by the names Constance Allen, Sarah Willson, Catherine Samuel, or Catherine Lukas. And she has written a lot of children’s books. (Four hundred thousand or so, as far as I can tell. Click here to see a partial list.)
- She is one of the funniest people I know. Check out the book trailer she made for one of her books. See what I mean?
- She’s also obsessed with history. But in a way that makes for one-of-a-kind books that give readers of all ages a unique look at our world and its past. Her POOP HAPPENED: A HISTORY OF THE WORLD FROM THE BOTTOM UP is a great example. And her newest title, BUGGED: HOW INSECTS CHANGED HISTORY, is another; look for it in April 2014.
- She’s good with voices. If you run into her, ask her to talk like a pirate for you. Trust me.
Thanks for the blog hop tag, Miss Sarah!
