In this episode, meet Sneed B. Collard III, award-winning author of more than 80 books. He’s best known for his science-based nonfiction for readers ages 5-12, and his middle grade and YA mysteries and thrillers. In 2006, Sneed was the recipient of the Washington Post Children’s Book Guild Children’s Nonfiction Writer of the Year Award for his body of work. In 2010, Sneed sought to address the shortage of quality regional children’s books by launching his own publishing company, Bucking Horse Books.

 

Sneed and Laura talk about nonfiction, writing for middle graders, and what it takes to start a publishing company of your own.

    I’m quite behind on listening! Just listened to this one. It was very interesting, helpful and had great variety. I’m looking forward to parking in a big chair at the library with several of his books and a notebook. Many thanks.
