Thank you to my friend Lawrence Schimel, for his support and advice early on, before I had any children's books out in the wild. I just wish he didn't live so far away!
In addition to being a writer, poet and translator, Lawrence is also publisher at A Midsummer Night's Press (he's worked with authors like Jane Yolen, Joe Haldeman and Nancy Willard!). You can find out more about his press at http://amidsummernightspress.com/WP/
p.s. I especially love his Fairy Tales For Writers.
