TGI Friday November 24, 2006

TGI Friday, November 24, 2006. I am pleased to welcome children’s author, Lynne Berry as my guest on Writers in the Sky Podcast!

Lynne grew up in Sudbury, a small suburb of Boston, Massachusetts and graduated from Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School in 1990. She earned a B.A. in biology in 1994 from Wellesley College and then attended Vanderbilt University where she received her Ph.D. in cell biology.

After publishing several papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals, she decided not to continue with laboratory research. Instead she entered the field of medical and technical writing as a day job, to enable her to pursue her interest in writing for children. She has published more than a dozen poems, many published in Ladybug magazine. In part 2 of our interview, we discuss Lynne’s children’s books Duck Skates and The Curious Demise of a Contrary Cat.

Each show has multiple parts which last about 15-20 minutes each. The short-length classes are a great way to learn about the craft and business of writing while driving to work or sweating at the gym!
