I Talked with James Preller and Things Got Weird

Author James Preller and I had a little back and forth over on his blog today. We talked about packing, of course, and green mold, and coffee tables, and backmatter in picture books.

James conducts a good interview – more conversational than most – and I think we hit on some good stuff.

And James Preller has a new book coming out tomorrow called Upstander, available wherever fine books are sold.

    This interview was AMAZING and super funny! Congrats on the book and P.S., I’d break out the vacuum for you. But most definitely for Cordell!
