My thanks to everyone who joined me yesterday for my online chat. I had expected the session to last 20 -30 minutes. After 70 minutes I was told to end the chat although there still remained a long list of unanswered questions and more kept popping up on my screen.
Many students had questions that I couldn’t get to. I’ve asked for a transcript of the program. If I get it, maybe the complete list of questions will be on it. If so, I promise to respond to them here on the blog. If the questions have been lost, I’ll ask that teachers and anyone else who wants to resend questions please post them under comments on this page or e-mail them directly to me. I promise to respond here on the blog as quickly as I can get to them all. Thanks again for your support and patience. This was a first-time experience and I had no idea what to expect.
Tomorrow we’ll enjoy my guest blogger Sandy Asher. Sandy and I have been friends and working partners for more than thirty years. She is one of those rare people who always comes through and meets her promises on time. I could go on but here is her bio to help you learn something more about her. Believe me, she could have written a lot more! i have every intention of inviting Sandy back later to talk about some of her other interests and talents.
Sandy Asher has written 25 books for young readers, including the award-winning TOO MANY FROGS! and its companion books WHAT A PARTY! and HERE COMES GOSLING! She’s also edited five books of fiction, among them WITH ALL MY HEART, WITH ALL MY MIND, winner of the National Jewish Book Award in children’s literature and her latest, WRITING IT RIGHT! HOW SUCCESSFUL CHILDREN’S AUTHORS REVISE AND SELL THEIR STORIES. Her plays, written as Sandra Fenichel Asher, have been produced across the country and in various foreign countries.

Tune in tomorrow to enjoy Sandy’s remarks.
