We had the opportunity to attend another St. Louis County Library author presentation. This time we listened to Doreen Cronin. She was entertaining for both children and adults. She talked about how she became an author and shared personal aspects of her life. Doreen shared her secrets for choosing character names and how she fashions stories from inspirational people in her life. I was touched by her description of the time she wrote Click Clack Moo Cows That Type. Her father was the main inspiration and continues to be a part of her writing even though he passed away before she wrote this book.
We bought two books and she graciously signed each one. Doreen has a pleasant personality and seems like a very nice person. I look forward to reading her latest release The Trouble With Chickens.
