Ever since I moved here a year and a half ago, I’ve been wondering what, exactly, it is that makes Colorado such a wonderful place to be a writer.Could it be the near-constant sunshine? Is there something in the (mountain-spring-fresh) water or the (clean, not-humid) air? Or is it perhaps the mountain scenery all around that makes me feel like I’m living in a writers’ retreat?
I’m still not sure what the answer is, so I’ve turned to my fellow Colorado writers to help me figure it out.
Coming soon–as in, tomorrow!–I’m starting a new interview series on this blog that highlights the amazing community of kidlit writers we have here in my adopted home state and asks them about their connections to Colorado. I’ve even put my questionable Microsoft Paint skills to use to create a snazzy logo for it. 🙂
We’ll be kicking things off tomorrow with Jeannie Mobley, whose debut novel Katerina’s Wish just won the Colorado Book Award (hooray!). Then the series will continue with a new interview every other Tuesday.
I hope that you’ll stop by!
