Radio interview with NPR's Houston Matters

With Houston Matters' Michael Hagerty

I was delighted to have had the chance recently to chat with the delightful Michael Hagerty, senior producer of NPR's Houston Matters program on Houston Public Media.  Below is the interview which aired yesterday, in which I discuss WAIT FOR ME and its historical background, and also about my thoughts on the importance of historical fiction for young adult readers.
