Books 2 – 4 were only ideas when I signed the contract, so I had to write three books from scratch during that time.

Not only that but I had to juggle the books – I was doing copy edits on Mochi Queen, revising Super Sleuth, and writing Drummer Girl.

What have been the greatest challenges about this project so far?

How has creating these stories stretched you as a writer?

I then spent months reading and studying chapter books by authors I admired (Grace Lin and Kate Messner to name two) before I wrote my first draft. I wanted to tell Jasmine’s story and I’d accomplished that with Mochi Queen.

So having my editor, Grace Kendall, ask me to write a series thrilled me.

As for stretching me as a writer, I think it made me realize that I could work faster. For books 3 and 4, I sent Grace earlier drafts than I would have had I been querying/subbing.
