I’ve been working on editing my book about Theodate Pope, a famous female architect from Connecticut, and BOY, non-fiction picture books are an entirely different animal! My brain is happy for the challenge, and I’m so thankful for an experienced editor to help me wade through the writing waters. Still, I’ve got miles to go!
