“I truly enjoyed working with Outskirts Press. I did have a wonderful ‘meet-the-author’ experience with a group of fifth grade students. They loved ‘The Fish Smuggler’ as it was a story about their student teacher. It was such fun to share with them. My husband, one of the illustrators, was there also. The kids thought it was great. They were a great group of children.”
