Mentor Monday Interview with Me and Tracy Bilen

Mentor Monday Interview with Me and Tracy Bilen

 

    

 

 

 Carrie A. Pearson’s site hosts an article or interview dealing with mentors and mentorship every Monday.  Today (March 12, 2012) she’s posted an interview with me (as an SCBWI mentor) and Tracy Bilen (mentoree–is there such a word?) whose teen novel What She Left Behind will be published by Simon Pulse/Simon & Schuster later this year.  YAY, Tracy!  For me, it was a fun to read Tracy’s responses and then respond, myself.  Take a look at Carrie’s site . . . click here: http://www.carriepearsonbooks.com/1/post/2012/03/mentor-monday-shutta-crum-and-tracy-bilen-an-scbwi-mi-mentorship-program-success-story.html
