A Star for Starfall
I’m doing as much editing as writing these days. One of the projects I’ve been working on as editor is a picture book collaboration between two newcomers to the world of children’s books, Diana Kolpak and Kathleen Finlay. Pretty satisfying to see a starred review (from galleys) for Starfall in the September issue of Q&Q!
Of course, the “lyrical, melodic” writing is Diana’s and the “starkly beautiful” photographs are Kathleen’s. But I’m sure they won’t mind if the folks at Red Deer Press, Blair Kerrigan (the book’s designer), and I seem to be as proud of their star as they are.
