Kerrie Logan Hollihan is a veteran non-fiction writer from my local Cincinnati SCBWI group who has multiple honors under her belt for her previous books. Her latest book Mummies Exposed! "The Scoop on Sleeping Beauties, Masked Men & Tattooed Tourists, Traders, and Tribesmen" is set to come out May 2019.
It's the first book in the new "CREEPY and TRUE" series published by Abrams Books for Young Readers.
Everyone has certainly heard of the mummy of the boy King, Tut. This book includes him, of course, but also discusses the discovery of many more mummies that are not as well known. Full color photographs of the subjects are included as are interesting "factlets" throughout. I am happy Kerrie has agreed to answer some questions about her upcoming book and about her writing life.
I am a writer of Children's and Young Adult books. I received my MFA in Creative Writing for Children and Young Adults from Hamline University in St. Paul, MN, and am an active member of SCBWI. I also have my MLS in Library Science with an emphasis on children and happily worked as a Children's Librarian for nearly 20 years. One of my favorite activities was reading books aloud to kids, especially to school-aged kids. Like the kids, I enjoy having stories read to me, so I listen to many of my books on audio and serve on audio judging committees.
Another favorite activity is creating fun snacks for library programs, friends, and family. I do that a lot and continually search for more ideas.
I have a very large Russian Blue mix cat named Bosley from the shelter, and a rescue dog named Prince Albert. He's a Cavapoo, which means he's part Cavalier King Charles and part poodle, and adorable. I am married and live in Dayton, Ohio with my husband Rod.
