Crafty Nancy

This weekend Nancy was up in Vermont for Kindling Words, which is half retreat, half conference for authors, illustrators, and editors of children's books. She led three discussions, and apparently it went well. The interaction was lively, a couple of writers whom she really respects told her they'd learned from her, and her friends reported that she was generally a hit.

I can't say that I'm surprised. Seems to my untutored eye that Nancy really knows her craft: she spends a lot of time thinking about it and working on it, and she's smart, and honest with herself, and it all adds up.
