I am so excited to post my FIRST EVER vlog, in which I interview my friend and fellow author, Sarah Towle. I met Sarah, an American living in Paris, at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair. I came to speak with her at the SCBWI booth about apps and app development. She was there to talk about her groundbreaking app geared for tweens and teens – Beware Madame La Guillotine – a Paris walking tour narrated by a real-life woman of the French Revolution.
Being a lover of travel, history AND books, I was immediately taken with Sarah’s brilliant app. We got to chatting and not only did she give me great information, she also took me under her wing for the rest of the fair. I’ve been wanting to have her on the blog ever since, and voila! Today’s the day.
Now, our video interview is fairly long. I had the goal to keep it to 10-15 minutes, but the conversation was so fascinating, I couldn’t help myself. BUT, there is a special treat waiting at the end of the interview – a special opportunity for writers, announced for the first time here today. If, after listening to the interview, you want more information about Sarah, Time Traveler Tours and the app, here is a link to her media page with all of the interviews she’s done in various venues. My personal favorites are the Cynsations interview, the SLJ Touch & Go interview and this podcast. Now, without further adieu, please enjoy our interview!
