Hi! Shanda McCloskey here. I'm a full time author and illustrator of children's books and passionate about talking with kids about the ups and downs and sideways of being creative!
As an author/illustrator, I get to connect with students once in a while through school visits, but I get to have an ONGOINGconnection with kids via The Pencil Pusher Quarterly – a hold-it-in-your-hands-REAL-full-color newspaper all about how creative problem solving is sometimes messy, rarely a straight line, and should be enjoyed throughout the process!
