1. Inspiration can come from anywhere. The song of a bird .. a project with your daughter! When Marit's daughter was researching a project about birds, Marit was intrigued. The more she learned, the more she realized that there was a story in there. A fable to be exact!

    Marit's award-winning book Song for Papa Crow is more than just another animal fable. It is a story grounded by facts about birds and their habits. In this interview with Terry Doherty, Marit shares her story, a few bird facts, and tells us how the book inspired a song.

  4. In her award-winning children's book Stuck, Rhonda C. Martin tackles the topic of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. This is Cinnamon's story about being "stuck" when washing her hands after art or playing with her dolls or doing math homework.

    It's not a story line you often see, and in this interview Rhonda talks about the importance of getting the word out, helping people understand the difference between OCD and ADHD / ADD, and engaging readers to be compassionate people.
