Kevin Carroll has led a remarkable life – and he’s just getting started. Head athletic trainer for the Philadelphia 76ers, Nike’s first-ever “creative change agent”, an in-demand speaker with multiple Ted Talks and now, a successful children’s book author.
 
In fact, his A Kid’s Book About Belonging was just named one of Oprah’s Favorite Things for 2020!
 
Kevin has some big things to communicate with kids, and he has a fascinating approach that should make every kidlit author stand up and take notice. He also talks through a process to re-think and re-ignite your calling as a writer that you will find very powerful.
 
Laura also checks in with publishing links, and we celebrate the successes of some Children’s Book Insider subscribers.
