Career day

Many thanks to the teachers and students at Dimmitt Middle School in Renton, WA, which hosted their 7th annual Career Day yesterday. It was an honor to be invited and I had a lot of fun showing the students how a book comes to life, from the author’s first ideas, through the writing, submitting, and working with an editor, and on to the typesetting, design, illustration, and press.

I had a great time! It was a great experience to chalk up for my first school visit.
