"So You Want to Write a Children’s Book"

Peter CarverTo me, he’s my sweetie Petey, my life partner of 26 years. He’s the dad of my stepdaughters, the stepdad of my own kids, and Grampa to our grandkids. To the community of writers of books for young people in Canada, Peter Carver is a writing teacher extraordinaire, an astute and caring editor, a trusted mentor, a friend.

Now he’s written a book that shares his expertise with those who have not had the pleasure and privilege of working with him directly. I hope its first, excellent review encourages him to keep on with his writing!

    Thanks, Susan. I'll be sure to pass along your message.

    And btw, congrats on the release of Off to Class: Incredible and Unusual Schools Around the World. It looks like a winner, too.
