Probably More Than You Want To Know by Sarah Glenn Fortson
Good news! Peter Pauper Press is publishing my little cowgirl book! She's due out October, 2019. I first introduced her at The Writing Barn in Texas and Mara Conlon was in the house, er...Barn. She's now my most wonderful editor! And Russ Cox is our illustrious illustrator. For me, writing is a second career. I was an educator for a long time and probably still am in a sense. I love my new life as a writer. I've enjoyed summers at Iowa's Writing Festival and one summer at Northwestern University's Talent Development Center where I taught creative writing to gifted elementary and middle schoolers. In winter I've painted in Fairhope, Alabama at the infamous art studio, which was once a gas station. Illustration is probably not in my future, but sometimes stories form in my head while I paint. I'm a member of SCBWI and Off Campus Writers in Winnetka, Illinois. I enjoy taking writing classes online and on site. In addition to Picture Book Intensives at The Writing Barn, I've attended classes at Highlights Foundation, the Wild, Wild Midwest conference and the Picture Book Summit. I'm intrigued with writing picture books, both fiction and nonfiction, but have middle grade and young adult projects as well. So that is all. If you made it through to the end, "Hi, Sis."... because you're probably the only one who did.
