Author Spotlight: Natasha Yim and Gretchen Maurer

I had the pleasure of talking with not one, but two authors this week as they prepared for their World of Ink virtual tour. One of which is Natasha Yim, a children's book author and freelance writer. Charlesbridge Publishing published her first book, Otto’s Rainy Day in 2000. It was selected as a Kids' Pick of the Lists. She has written for Highlights for Children, Appleseeds and Faces magazines, and her new picture book biography, Cixi, The Dragon Empress was released by Goosebottom Books in October 2011. Natasha is also a full-time Mom. She shared, “I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to be home with my kids. Now that they’re in school at least part of the time (My son is in a half-day kindergarten), I can have larger chunks of writing time.”
