What a great year! Let’s take a trip down memory lane and revisit the authors we met in person and via e-mail during 2009 …

  • Emily Gravett, who I actually met back in 2008 during her promotion of Little Mouse’s Big Book of Fears, was the first interview that we published in 2009. Actually, it was our first ever podcast!
