I had a fun and filled with great information interview with children's book author Mariana Llanos. We talked about her new book A Superpower For Me, how she wrote it, published and marketed it. It was especially cool to learn about Skype for Classroom and how she uses it for marketing.
A Superpower For Me
Mariana Llanos is a Peruvian born writer who has written stories since she was young. Her first book, Tristan Wolf, was published in 2013. "I first started writing poems and then moved on to short stories. When I was at school I liked to adapt classic plays like Hamlet or Faust and make them into comedy skits. Then, my friends and I had a great time performing them at school functions. I love art in all its forms. I not only write for children. I write for whoever wants to hear a story with a heart.
Now that I have a family, I write stories that I know my children will read. I put a lil' bit of them in my characters and a lil' bit about myself but mostly, my characters come from deep inside my imagination. I sometimes think that I have little people living inside my head and, from time to time, they take over and command me to tell their story.
My hope is that children and grown-ups will be inspired and entertained by my writing. If I put a smile on your face today, then my job is done."
