When I first came upon Booki Vivat's book series, "Frazzled", I instantly knew I wanted them. I was vending at a market and decided I was going to buy them from my book seller neighbor, (but Camilo said I bought enough books... then later bought them for me for Christmas, so it was a win!) Not only is she an author/illustrator (win again!), but she’s obsessed with pastries.
It was so exciting to get to interview someone who (also) wrote and illustrated a book for middle grade kids, and Booki’s story is super interesting! Make sure to listen to find out how she went from working at a publishing house, to becoming a published author, without even pitching any books!!
