Summer Blog Series: Mitali Perkins

From Avi: As I did last sum­mer, I’ve invit­ed 13 admired mid­dle grade authors to write for my blog for the next three months. I hope you’ll tune in each Tues­day to see who has answered these three ques­tions. You should have a list of ter­rif­ic books to read and share and read aloud by the end of the sum­mer … along with new authors to follow!

Your favorite book on writing:

Late­ly I have been using Save the Cat Writes a Nov­el by Jes­si­ca Brody, which has helped me with my main writ­ing struggle—structure. 

Save the Cat Writes a Novel by Jessica Brody
Reading aloud from my books:

I’d start with Rick­shaw Girl (Charles­bridge) if you want to read a book of mine aloud. I’ve been told that it’s a good fam­i­ly read. It’s been adapt­ed to a film, too!

Where do you write most often?

Here I am right now writ­ing on my patio in Cal­i­for­nia, and this is my view. Am I blessed or what?

Mital­i’s newest book, avail­able July 11, 2023!
