Sun in My Tummy: A Conversation With Andrea Blinick and Erin Alladin

May 2, 2022

In lieu of an in-person launch, my collaborators Andrea Blinick (illustrator) and Erin Alladin (editor) and I met virtually to talk about the background to our book Sun in My Tummy.

It was good to have a chance to share a bit of the story behind the story, including reminiscing about a terrific grade six field trip which still fills me with excitement! And I loved peeking behind the scenes as Andrea developed the main character and played with different effects of light and darkness.

Special thanks to my daughter Miriam for doing the video editing. I was terrified that the recording would not work, but I managed to download it successfully, and Miriam stitched the bits and pieces together better than I ever could have. I have learned a lot about technology over the past couple of years, but if you need something done quickly, ask a teenager!

Here is the link to our conversation. I enjoyed it and I hope you do too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwOMI-fAaMM
