So you'd like to be a writer? Or maybe, you'd just like to know what it's like to be an author. Where does a writer get her ideas? How does she sell what she has written? Does she have to find an illustrator for her picture books? Authors are rich, right? :-) Well, what DO authors make? Claudia takes audiences with her on a journey from coming up with the initial book idea to selling the work to a publisher to the editing process . . . and much, much more. This eye-opening presentation appeals to anyone who loves to write . . . or read . . . books! Time for Q&A makes sure that everyone's questions get answered.
