Both sides of the creative process

Last summer, while in the midst of working on We Wish You A Merry Christmas, Helaine Becker and I got together on zoom for a chat about the books we have done together.

Helaine is a wonderfully witty and funny lady who has written countless other books. You never know what she is going to say.

Here we chatted about everything from the beautiful tiles in her bathroom, (yes, I know that’s crazy and not really about books), to what it’s like to work on a book together.

Here’s a chance to see and hear from both sides of the creative process. I hope it inspires you to write or illustrate your own story.
