"I actually used to want to write for children's television. I watched a lot of cartoons growing up. A LOT. And probably until I was far older than the intended target audience. I always loved paying attention to the storylines, dialogue, underlying plots, themes, and moods. And I used to imagine how I would have done the story differently. I never realized that could translate into writing book tie-ins for children’s television and toys so well, but it does!"
