Kylie Howarth on researching great characters

Podcast interview with Kylie Howarth.

Today’s guest is part author, part illustrator and part fish! She has swum with all kinds of marine creatures including 20 hammerhead sharks all in the name of research for her popular chapter book series, Fish Kid. Now that’s dedication!

She is an internationally published children’s author from Western Australia and she’s with us today to talk about her journey, offer up some tips and tell us more about that endearing little seagull, named Chip.
