In the KOOP

Tonight, GLS and I joined Austin illustrator Christy Stallop at KOOP 91.7 FM "Community Radio for Austin" on "Writing on the Air" in discussing live the subject of writing and illustrating books for young readers. Christy is the debut illustrator of There's A Yak In My Bed by K. Pluta (Blooming Tree, 2007). She offered many insights on the role of illustration in picture books and graphic novels. Afterward, we had a divine dinner at Maru on Burnet, which offers some of the best sushi in town and is highly recommended.
