Katrina Germein interview

Today’s guest is an award-winning author of picture books and only picture books. She is super passionate about the genre that she won’t write anything else. Don’t even bother asking her. It‘s picture books that make her heart sing. And, her own picture books have been described as ‘love-filled’, ‘goose-bumpling’, and ‘achingly beautiful’. And I’ll go one more and say ‘hilarious!’

She’s the author of the My Dad Thinks He’s Funny series and much more, including her latest heart-warming book, Before you were born,

And she’s popped in today to share her journey with us, as well as some super tips on the craft of creating picture books. It’s Katrina Germein, ladies and gentlemen!
