THE GUEST BOOK PODCAST: Growing Up Dyslexic. A Chat with Fellow Author Tom Phillips


As part of Dyslexia Awareness Month, I was invited onto The Guest Book Podcast to speak with fellow middle grade author and creator of The Curious League of Detectives and Thieves, Tim Phillips. We chatted about growing up dyslexic and how it affected us on our paths to becoming debut authors, as well as some thoughts on the leap from writing for entertainment to a literary series. It was a fun conversation and I hope it encourages kids who listen to pick up a pen (or keyboard) and write the stories inside them, because dyslexia should never be an impediment to creativity, communication, and great ideas.
