    Introducing the #Author Series

    Introducing the #Author Series

    Whenever you see an episode that begins with #author you know that I’m either talking directly with one of your favorite authors, getting their behind the scenes life and backstory or I’m sharing with you a crazy interesting story I found out about an author.
    These episodes are meant to give the story behind the story and would make great listening for a listen and response station in the classroom.
    Hear the incredible stories of how the authors you love came to be or came to write your favorite stories.
