This 13 year old main character describes this quirky, eccentric woman as “not your typical let’s make cookies kind of Grandma”… … Read the rest
Having recently wrapped up my third MG novel of my Frenchie series, Writer’s Digest’s promotion of Mary Kole’s book, “Writing Irresistible KIDLIT –The Ultimate Guide to Crafting Fiction for Young Adult and Middle Grade Readers” caught my attention.
