Susan Tan already is an author extraordinaire—unlike her character Cilla-Lee Jenkins Future Author Extraordinaire illustrated by Dana Wulfekotte (Roaring Brook Press, 2017). In all her books, Susan draws upon her own cultural identity and family dynamics to spin a funny and touching story that captures the reader and leaves them wanting more.
I am excited to welcome author-illustrator Deborah Marcero to Cynsations today to talk about her latest work as well as what she loves about the creative process of writing and illustrating books.
Welcome, Deborah! What do you love most about the creative life/being an author? Why?
