Interview with Carol Heyer

Carol Heyer signing booksRelatable characters and stories facilitate a strong connection between the reader and the book. It doesn’t matter whether or not the stories are real, only that the reader can relate to the feelings that are core to the story. The same is true for the characters. A great example is Humphrey, the lovable grumpy camel in the picture book, Humphrey’s First Christmas.

On this edition of Just One More Book, Mark speaks with author, illustrator and artist Carol Heyer about creating a relatable character, how a career as a storyboard artist and screen writer can prepare you to be a children’s book illustrator and author and how her philosophy helps her love her work.
