Today we talk with children’s author Cory Leonardo about her decision to never take a writing class in college, her long journey to publication, and why she kept going.
Cory’s first novel, The Simple Art of Flying, was awarded a Parents’ Choice Silver Medal, and has turned up in everything from OwlCrate Jr.’s book subscription box to Scholastic Book Fairs. We are so pleased to have her kind and encouraging voice on the podcast today.
