Lucy in Magpies, March 2017


The recently published March issue of Magpies Magazine features Lucy’s Book on the cover! How appropriate, considering that my very first paid writing work was for that magazine back in the late 1980s. This issue includes an article I wrote about my life in libraries—on both sides of the circulation desk—and how I came to write Lucy’s Book. I am amused to report that the article about writing the story is actually longer than the text in the book, something that surely only ever happens to an author of picture book texts!
