Friends on the Radio

I recently listened to the interviews of children's authors, Linda Bailey and Robert Heidbreder, on CBC's North by Northwest show. Sheryl McKay is a wonderful interviewer and she was able to get them to talk at length about their writing process and why they do what they do. All three of them are friends of mine, so it was a real treat to hear them speak together.

Linda is a prolific writer and her works include Stanley's Party and a number of other Stanley stories. Robert is a children's poet, and the author of many books, including Drumheller Dinosaur Dance, shown above. (Dancing dinosaurs and partying canines. What could be more fun?!!!)

If you'd like to listen to the interviews, you can check them out on podcast. Linda's interview is here (it starts about 1/3 of the way in). Robert's is here. Check out their websites, too:

Maybe you'll be inspired to pick up your pen!
