Behind the Scenes of my Books…

I was so excited to participate in TeachingBooks and share the behind the scenes of my following books. I was interviewed by Katie; the neat thing about this interview is that Katie had a full conversation with me, and when they edited the audio, they put just my voice and some key highlights, so it sounds like I’m speaking naturally, but that’s because I was actually speaking to Katie. Thank you for putting me at ease!

In the interviews, I share my writing process, where I may have come up with the idea, and what I hope readers will walk away with after reading my books.

Meet-the-Author of I Can Help

Meet-the-Author of Lailah’s Lunchbox

Meet-the-Author of Milloo’s Mind

Meet-the-Author of Swimming Toward a Dream 

Meet-the-Author of Amira’s Picture Day

Meet-the-Author of Unsettled

Meet-the-Author of Golden Girl

The above links do not require a license or sign in to TeachingBooks, so I hope you enjoy these audio resources.

Thank you again Katie!


Also since I’m sharing audio recordings here are two more podcasts from April or National Poetry Month!

For the Joyful Learning podcast, for my interview with Melissa Thom, Listen here!

And for the Children’s Book Podcast with Matthew Winner, to hear a 3 minute recording of me reading GOLDEN GIRL, listen here!

Eid Mubarak!

Lastly, Eid Mubarak to all those who celebrate! For public schools with students who celebrate Eid, please make sure that you don’t plan important activities on these days such as Picture Day, Spelling Bee, field trips, etc! I was surprised by how many messages I got where people messaged me to say their Eid did fall on picture day!

Eid Mubarak and THANK YOU for the AMIRA’S PICTURE DAY support! Here are some Ramadan/Eid books we’ve loved!
