Are you crazy about horses? Jessica Burkhart is!

She’s the author of Canterwood Crest, a new tween series from Aladdin MIX. It’s The Clique meets The Saddle Club.

In this video, Jessica talks about her source of inspiration, shows off her extensive lipgloss collection, and gives advice to young writers hoping to be published someday. Jessica, now 22 years old, was first published at the tender age of 14.

The 12-year-old fan interviewing Jessica is my neighbor Roshni, who just happens to be my expert source on all things middle school.

Take it away, Roshni and Jessica!

As a children's book author and mother of two, I'm pushing a stroller along the path to publication. I collect shiny doodads on the journey and share them here. You've found a kidlit treasure box.
