I was interviewed recently by Yitty Falk, who edits The Frum Books Newsletter for readers of Orthodox Jewish books. She usually focuses on books for adults, but wanted to focus on younger readers and included me and my work as part of her middle-grade round up.

Bestselling authors Miriam Walfish and Faygie Holt join me to give you context on their genre and something to think about when choosing books for your daughters." Yitty had some great questions including why tweens like to read about real-life problems and issues. It was a fun interview and discussion.
