One of our favorite things to do is talk with authors (and more recently, illustrators and narrators!) We love hearing how they got their start, what great advice they have for newbies like Megan (because someday, mark her words, all those ideas will become a story . . . or at least one idea will). It’s such fun for us!

Here are some of the incredible, talented individuals we at the Ginger Mom have had the privilege to talk with!
