About EA: When EA is not chomping through the slush pile and answering writerly questions at her blog of epic awesome, we readers assume she lives the highlife as a stiletto’d fashionista, prowling through Manhattan with her ferret on a leash and a very trendy book under one arm.  Also, she clearly must have a horde of aspiring Anonymati following her every clacking footstep offering lattes and pre-peeled grapes.

Oh wait.  She’s a children’s book editor.  Well, at least the book part is probably right.

For a particular look into the mind of EA…

“If I had a talking animal, it would be a Sasquatch.”

For serious! Who wouldn’t want a talking sasquatch?  Think of how easy it would be to move through traffic.
