Agent/Author/Editor Dynamic Part 2: With Scholastic Editor Lisa Sandell and Author Jennifer A. Neilsen
Show Notes

In Part 2 of our Agent / Author / Editor series with Jennifer A. Nielsen, we dig in to interview prolific author / editor duo: Jennifer A. Nielsen and Lisa Sandell of Scholastic Press.  The two have worked together for years, bringing many books into publication together. They've collaborated on such amazing reads as THE FALSE PRINCE, THE MARK OF THE THIEF, WORDS ON FIRE, A NIGHT DIVIDED, RESCUE, and many more. We had way too much fun with  this interview, and learned so much. Get the inside scoop on a healthy author / editor  relationship. If you missed Part 1, give it a listen also.
