Yay for J.C. Phillipps!

Have you read this book yet?
It's called Wink: The Ninja Who Wanted to be Noticed by J.C. Phillipps.

It’s about a spirited young Ninja named Wink who is anything but stealth – he is a ham in fact. I especially love the part where Wink dresses up in a ninja costume made from his grandma’s pink floral curtains. I WANT that ninja costume.

Anyway, I'm a big fan and so this past fall when I was lucky enough to win a critique through a charity auction from Wink’s author/illustrator, I was thrilled.

And not only did J.C. Phillipps offer me helpful advice for the story I sent her, she also agreed to answer some interview questions about her work for the SCBWI Western Washington’s upcoming printed Chinook newsletter!

So because the newsletter will be coming out soon, I thought it might be fun to also give her a shout out here on my blog. If you haven’t read her book, go check it out. Also, take a peek at her website and her blog. I especially love the studio tour video she has put up on her website. And I love the recent posts on her blog regarding her process.

Thanks for the critique and interview, Julie! But most especially thanks for the great book! I can’t wait until your next one comes out.
