I am pleased to welcome my very own children as our first guests! Since they wanted to interview me, I will let them take the reigns from here:
Kids: We are so excited to do a super short interview of our mom, today! Are you ready, Mom?
Carrie: You betcha!
Kids: Did that count as the first question?
Carrie: Um, no. Start now.
Kids: Okay, fine.
Little C: What is your favorite picture book?
Carrie: Well, it certainly is hard to choose just one, but a few of my favorites are Chloe and the Lion by Mac Barnett, Boy + Bot by Ame Dyckman, and Being Frank by Donna W. Earnhardt. I love books that are funny, have unexpected twists, and capture the wonder of being a child.
E-Rock: What is your favorite gum flavor?
Carrie: I can still smell and taste the tangy super-powered grape bursts of flavor that I enjoyed as a child! It made really huge bubbles, too!
Big C: What is your main goal as a writer?
Carrie: Impacting children in a positive way through literary experiences has always been my goal as a teacher, writer, and mom. My hope is to inspire children so much that they will ooze excitement, and then go out and affect others in the same way, too.
Kids: Since we each asked a question now, can we go play?
Carrie: Didn't you want to tell our loyal readers about the Carrie On...Book Clubs, that you will be hosting?
Kids: Oh, yeah! Be sure to subscribe so you won't miss the chance to be part of our book clubs. They start on June 1st! We want you to read with us, and share your comments. Can't wait to read together!
